New Delhi : Former Himachal Pradesh chief minister Prem Kumar Dhumal will be leading the BJP campaign in the upcoming Himachal Pradesh Assembly elections, party national president Amit Shah said on Tuesday. Dhumal has held the post in the state twice before, from March 1998 to March 2003 and from January 2008 to December 2012. Last week, when Finance Minister Arun Jaitley released the party’s election manifesto, he had said, “One of our very experienced leaders will be the chief ministerial candidate”. Jaitley, however, did not say whether the party will announce a candidate or decide after the polls, calling it a “matter of strategy”. The Himachal Pradesh Assembly elections will be held on November 9, and the results will be declared on December 18. SEARCH talking point on sify news Latest Features
