HP assembly poll: BJP seeks feedback from party candidates

06:05 PM Dec 04, 2022 | PTI |

The BJP’s Himachal Pradesh unit on Sunday sought feedback from all the 68 party candidates who contested the assembly elections on November 12.


The internal exercise of the party was aimed at reviewing the prospects of its candidates.

Discussions on the seats that the party considers weak and the reasons why the candidates in such seats may lose will also be held, sources in the party said.

During the meeting, the candidates will submit a report on ”anti-party activities” by the BJP leaders and members in their respective constituencies, they said.

The saffron party is also assessing the probable independent winners, their ideology and their potential role in the days to come, they added.


The meeting is being held in Dharamshala.

Interacting with the media, Chief Minister Jairam Thakur claimed that the BJP will emerge victorious and change the state’s tradition by forming the government for the second consecutive term.

Taking a dig at the Congress, he said there are eight to 10 candidates in that party who aspire to be the chief minister, but claimed that all their hopes will be dashed.

He also thanked the public for recording 76 per cent turnout in the election.

The results will be announced on December 8.
