Congress Relies On Old Guard To Win Himachal 2017 Elections

In the list of 59 candidates released by All India Congress Committee (AICC) for contesting the Himachal 2017 General Assembly elections, there are few fresh faces and the party bidding for retaining power has relied upon tried and veteran candidates.


Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi has already declared that Mr Virbhadra Singh would be the party’s chief minister candidate and the election would be fought under his leadership. Seeking a 7th term in office, chief minister Virbhadra Singh today filed his nomination papers from Arki seat.

Under the signature of Oscar Fernandes, here is the list of candidates that the party has released to the media.

    Congress party is giving tickets to corrupt and over-aged persons who are not physically fit
    to hold the administrative post of CM and minister. It is now the prime responsibility of the
    public to reject those candidates who are corrupt and unable to perform duty since such
    persons are a liability for states and the ultimate sufferer is public. This fact must be
    considered before voting to such invalid persons.
