Names of Pratibha Singh from Mandi, Satpal Raizada from Hamirpur yet to be announced

It has been decided in principle to make State Congress President Pratibha Singh from Mandi parliamentary seat and former MLA Satpal Raizada from Hamirpur seat as candidates for the Lok Sabha elections. Now both these names are yet to be approved by the Central Election Committee of Congress. Brainstorming is going on regarding caste and regional balance to decide candidates from Shimla and Kangra seats. Congress is also making strategies keeping in view the candidates announced by BJP.

BJP has again fielded Suresh Kashyap from Shimla seat. Suresh Kashyap belongs to district Sirmour. In such a situation, Congress can field candidates from Sirmour to create regional balance and polarize the votes of Sirmour. If caste balance is seen, a candidate can be given from Shimla also. BJP has made Rajeev Bhardwaj its candidate from Kangra. In such a situation, there is a discussion going on within the Congress as to who should be made the candidate from Brahmin, OBC or Rajput class.
