Chief Minister Sukhvinder Singh Sukhu has said that nine Congress MLAs, including six rebels and three independent MLAs, who voted in favor of BJP candidate Harsh Mahajan during the Himachal Rajya Sabha elections on February 27, “sold their souls” and even compared the Congress rebels with black snakes during his speeches.
