Shimla: There is a ruckus in the Himachal Congress regarding the Chief Minister's chair. The meeting of MLAs to be held at 3 o'clock could start after 5 hours. Congress in-charge Rajeev Shukla, observers Bhupesh Baghel and Bhupendra Hooda have also reached Shimla party office for the meeting. The CM of Himachal will be announced after talking to the MLAs.

When the Observer and Chhattisgarh CM Bhupesh Baghel reached the Congress office, supporters of Pratibha Singh climbed on his car. They raised slogans in support of Pratibha. Supporters are demanding to make Pratibha the CM.
At the same time, Sukhwinder Sukhu, the other top contender for the post of Chief Minister, also reached the party office. As soon as he arrived, the supporters lifted him on the shoulders and took him inside the office. During this, there was also a scuffle between the supporters of Sukhu and Pratibha Singh. The police had to intervene. Additional security forces have been called in to handle the supporters.
Earlier, the meeting to be held at 3 pm could start at 6 pm due to absence of pro-Sukhu MLAs. Sukhu was untraceable along with his 18 supporting MLAs. He had also switched off his number. However, after persuasion by senior leaders, he reached the party office late in the evening. Pro-Sukhu MLAs also started reaching the Congress office.
