Hindustan Times (Chandigarh) - - Htpunjab&haryana -

For­mer Himachal

Con­gress pres­i­dent Sukhwinder

Singh Sukhu was hope­ful of lead­ing the party till the

2019 Lok Sabha elec­tions, but he was re­placed sud­denly by Kuldeep

Singh Rathore.

De­spite the Con­gress high com­mand nam­ing the new state unit chief, Sukhu quickly an­nounced new block units for Shimla ur­ban giv­ing com­mand to Ra­jya Sabha mem­ber Anand Sharma’s loy­al­ist Pradeep Singh Bhu­jja. He then also an­nounced new block units for Palam­pur and for Hamir­pur. The move has not gone well with Rathore.
