Dharamsala: Steering clear over a naming of a chief ministerial candidate a few months before the general assembly election here, senior Congress leader GS Bali said that none other than party president Sonia Gandhi would take the decision as to who would be chief minister of Himachal after the results of the elections.

Both union ministers, Anand Sharma and Virbhadra Singh, would be escorted by big motorcades to the Dari, the ground where Congress is to hold its rally tomorrow, he said.
