Top party leaders, including Prime Minister Narendra Modi and its president Amit Shah, are among the members of the committee.
Himachal, which has a 68-member Assembly, has a history of throwing the incumbent party out of power.
It remains to be seen if the saffron party announces its chief ministerial face in the run-up to the Himachal polls. The Congress has announced Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh as its choice for the top post in the state again.
