Meanwhile, RK Dhawan, the congress general secretary and party incharge from Himachal is staying put in a VIP suite at the state guest house Hotel Peterhof.
While BJP campaign incharge Satpal Jain is leading from the front congressmen were heard complaining that Dhawan has yet to make his presence felt in the election process.
â€œThe impression going out is that the party has already conceded defeat and there is no central leader countering the BJP propaganda,â€ said a concerned congressman. â€œLast time the media briefings were held by Anand Sharma, this time there is no central leader here,â€ he said, not wanting to be quoted.
