BJP releases list of star campaigners for Himachal Pradesh polls

With just weeks left for the upcoming Himachal Pradesh Assembly elections 2017, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has released the list of its star campaigners for the state.


The list of star campaigners has names of Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, his Goa counterpart Manohar Parrikar, Uttarakhand Chief Minister Trivendra Singh Rawat and Madhya Pradesh’s Shivraj Singh Chouhan.

But names of veteran leaders Lal Krishna Advani, Murli Manohar Joshi and Yashwant Sinha are missing from the list. The BJP had on October 18 released the full list of 68 candidates contesting for the crucial polls. Several senior party leaders and heavyweights are in the fray with former chief minister Prem Kumar Dhumal contesting from Sujanpur. The voting for the 68-member Assembly will take place on November 9 and the results will be declared on December 18.
