By Kamaljit Kaur Sandhu: Sukhwinder Singh Sukhu is set to be the next chief minister of Himachal Pradesh after the Congress high command gave its nod on Saturday. Several leaders including state Congress chief Pratibha Singh and leader of the opposition in the outgoing Assembly Mukesh Agnihotri were also in the race for the top post, but the party high command announced Sukhwinder Singh Sukhu as the next Himachal Pradesh CM.

Speaking to India Today, Sukhwinder Singh Sukhu assured that the Pratibha Singh camp will not be neglected in his cabinet.

Earlier today, supporters of Pratibha Singh carried out protests following reports of her being out of CM post race. Upset supporters of Pratibha Singh, who had earlier said that Virbhadra Singh’s family cannot be ignored, raised slogans that “Sukhu nahi Chalega” and “Rani sahiba ko mukhyamantri banao”.

Meanwhile, shortly after the decision was announced, Pratibha Singh said that she accepted the decision of the Congress high command.

Following the announcement, Sukhwinder Singh Sukhu said, “I have not done any lobbying. I have had all ranks in congress from NSUI as student leader to a CM now.”

He added, “Pratibha Singh camp will get something. Vikramaditya will get cabinet rank.”

Sukhwinder Singh Sukhu also expressed gratitude towards the Gandhi family.

“I want to thank Congress party chief Mallikarjun Kharge and Priyanka Gandhi for their efforts. The Gandhis have really helped me,” the CM-designate told India Today.
