Pratibha Singh was also considered in the race for the post of CM
Let us inform that Sukhwinder Singh Sukhu took oath as CM on December 11 after Congress got majority (40 seats) in the Himachal Pradesh Assembly elections (Himachal Pradesh Election 2022). However, earlier the name of Pratibha Singh was also believed to be included in the race for the post of CM. Significantly, Pratibha Singh is the wife of former Himachal Pradesh CM Virbhadra Singh. At present, she is also the State President of Himachal Congress.
People voted in the name of Virbhadra Singh
On the other hand, Pratibha Singh had expressed her family’s right for the Chief Minister’s post before the party high command approved Sukhu’s name. He had said that the condition of the Congress was not good in the Himachal assembly elections, but the people of the state have voted for the Congress in the name of Virbhadra Singh ji, so the high command should not be ignored.
