Shimla, July 26: The Himachal Congress is likely to go to the upcoming polls with the existing team led by Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh in the government and state president Sukhwinder Sukhu in the organization.This indication came today from Sushil Kumar Shinde, the new AICC general secretary in-charge of Himachal, who took charge in the presence of Virbhadra Singh, Sukhu and senior party leader Anand Sharma.“There will be no changes now. We are all united,” Shinde said when asked whether the Himachal Congress would see any further reshuffles, including in state presidency in the wake of bitterness between the CM and state chief.
Shinde said unity is the way forward in Himachal Pradesh. He downplayed the ongoing open war between the CM and Sukhu and said, “I will sort out everything like I did in 1993 when there were differences between Sukhramji and Virbhadra. I have just taken charge. I will visit Shimla on August 3 or 4 and will talk to everyone. Everything will be resolved. We will all be united and we will win the elections.
”Congress general secretary also made light of an alleged letter six Himachal MLAs are said to have written against the CM to the party leadership. “I have not seen any such letter,” Shinde said.Earlier at a meeting of Congress Legislature Party in Shimla, all MLAs had reposed faith in the leadership of Virbhadra Singh.Though Shinde swore by state organization’s unity today, all eyes were on CM Virbhadra Singh and his next move. The CM was silent today and was seen flashing smiles standing alongside Sukhu.
