Virbhadra Money Laundering Case

HP Polls 2017: Congress candidate list for 59 constituencies released

Shimla: After Bhartiya Janata Party released its list of candidates who were given ticket from various 68 constituencies of Himachal Pradesh Legislative Assembly, the Congress has also released a list of 59 candidates. 

The list was okayed at a meeting of the Congress central election committee chaired by party president Sonia Gandhi. Nominees for the rest nine seats, including Shimla (rural), are still to be announced. 

The Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh is contesting from Arki this time as he has sacrificed rural Shimla seat for his son, who will be fighting his first assembly elections.
