Sukhvinder Singh Sukhu: Amidst the political turmoil in Himachal, the first reaction of Chief Minister Sukhvinder Singh Sukhu has come to light. He said that propaganda is being spread regarding my resignation. I have not submitted any resignation. I am a warrior and know how to fight. In fact, such reports are coming that the Congress high command has asked for resignation from the Chief Minister. This evening, in the presence of Congress observers, a new leader will be elected in the Congress Legislature Party meeting and Sukhu will tender his resignation. Sukhu has reacted to this news.

Our government will last for 5 years – Sukhu

He said that we will prove our majority in the budget. Whatever BJP is saying that our MLAs are in touch with them, we will prove them wrong. Our government will last for 5 years. Sukhu further said that BJP is doing wrong in the House. Some BJP MLAs are also in touch with us. The news of my resignation is wrong. We are warriors and will fight like warriors. Congress government will last for 5 years. Meanwhile, CM Sukhu did not react to the resignation of former CM Virbhadra Singh's son and cabinet minister Vikramaditya Singh.

Dissatisfaction within Congress came out openly

In fact, Vikramaditya Singh, a minister in the Sukhu cabinet, in a press conference accused the MLAs of ignoring them and announced his resignation from the post of minister. After the resignation of Vikramaditya, the dissatisfaction within the Congress has come to the fore. The Congress had on Tuesday lost the election from the state's only Rajya Sabha seat to the Bharatiya Janata Party. Congress MLAs cross-voted and gave victory to the BJP candidate. In such a situation, to save its government from collapse, Congress is having to work hard to keep its MLAs united.

We will not step back from tough decisions: Congress

Regarding the political developments in Himachal Pradesh, Congress said that the party is paramount and it will not shy away from taking tough decisions to retain the mandate. Party general secretary Jairam Ramesh also said that Congress President Mallikarjun Kharge has spoken to the observers and asked them to talk to the MLAs and submit the report soon. He says that any action will be taken only after the report of the observers. According to Ramesh, “Former Chief Minister of Chhattisgarh Bhupesh Baghel, former Chief Minister of Haryana Bhupendra Hooda and Deputy Chief Minister of Karnataka DK Shivkumar are present in Shimla as observers. Congress' Himachal Pradesh in-charge Rajeev Shukla is also present in Himachal Pradesh. He said, "We will not allow the government to become unstable. If necessary, we will not shy away from taking tough decisions."
