Himachal Congress gets new chief

IANS  |  Shimla 

Congress was replaced on Thursday by Rathore, a confidant of former Union Anand Sharma, the party said.

Sukhu was replaced owing to differences between him and six-time Chief Virbhadra Singh, who was demanding his replacement before the Lok Sabha polls.

Sukhu, a legislator, had been of the party since 2013.

"The party appreciates the hard work and contribution of Shri Sukhvinder Singh Sukhu, who will be stepping down from his responsibility as PCC (Pradesh Congress Committee) of Himachal Pradesh," an official statement signed by All said.
