Himachal Crisis: Digvijaya Singh Says Action Will Be Taken Against Rebel MLAs ..!

Digvijaya Singh stated on Friday that necessary action would be taken against six Congress MLAs in Himachal Pradesh who cross-voted in the recently concluded Rajya Sabha elections.

“Action will be taken against rebellions at the right time,” Digvijay Singh said while speaking to reporters in Morena.

With regards to the selection of candidates for the upcoming Lok Sabha polls, Digvijay Singh stated, “The decision will be made by our Central Election Committee (CEC).”

Earlier, Digvijaya Singh arrived in Morena to assess the preparations for the party’s ‘Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra’, which is scheduled to enter Madhya Pradesh via the district.

The six Congress MLAs involved in the cross-voting are: Sudhir Sharma, Rajinder Rana, Davinder K Bhutto, Ravi Thakur, Chaitanya Sharma, and Inder Dutt Lakhanpal. The MLAs were later disqualified from the 68-member state assembly.

Following the disqualification of the MLAs, the state assembly’s strength and the majority mark came down.

A group of All India Congress Committee (AICC) observers, namely Bhupinder Singh Hooda, Bhupesh Baghel and D.K. Shivakumar, addressed the media in Shimla earlier, stating that chief minister Sukhvinder Singh Sukhu had taken responsibility for Abhishek Singhvi’s defeat in the Rajya Sabha polls.

The AICC observers emphasized the Congress government’s intention to serving the full five-year term and announced the formation of a six-member coordination group to handle internal differences.

The crisis threatening the Congress administration in Himachal Pradesh emphasized the state unit’s divide, with one part led by Chief Minister Sukhvinder Singh Sukhu and the other by Pratibha Singh, the president of the Himachal Pradesh Congress and wife of late Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh.

Singh spoke on how the disqualification of MLAs might affect the upcoming Lok Sabha elections in 2024.
