Intriguing Political Battle unfolding in Himachal Bypolls

As electioneering reaches a crescendo in the country  for the phased lok sabha elections the tiny hill state of Himachal  which has four parliamentary  constituencies will see an intriguing  battle in the bypolls  being held simultaneously  with the lok sabha elections after the expulsion of 6 MLA’S  from the Congress and their  joining  the BJP along with  3 independents. after their cross voting in the upper house elctions. 

However it’s the allotment  of  BJP tickets to these 6 rebels and  3 independents  in preference  to the very people whom they had defeated in the 2022 assembly  elections under the Congress banner which  has set the cat amongst the pigeons. 

Thus it’s  the 9 by-elections which hold great interest  in himachal  as compared to the 4 lok sabha seats which will also be simultaneously  going to the polls on the 1st of June. 

It would be intriguing  and interesting  to see if the BJP is able to placate and pacify the people who have been denied party tickets in preference  to the 6 turncoats and 3 independents.

The results  of these bypolls more than that of the 4 lok sabha seats will decide the fate of the Sukhu government in Himachal. The Congress presently has 34 MLA’S  in a house of 68 and is just holding on to a simple majority.  

The BJP  is hoping that it can wrest the initiative  from the Congress by winning all 9 bypolls  and thus be in  a position  to topple the Sukhwinder singh sukhu government. 

However  even  if the BJP wins all 9 seats which seems highly unlikely it would equal the Congress  number of 34 in the 68 member house which could  trigger another  round  of horse trading 

On the other hand the Congress and the CM himself has been  alleging in all the rallies that these political  turncoats were bought  by the BJP after paying huge sums and should be rejected by the electorate.

 It would  be interesting to see if the people  of Himachal vote in favour  of these 9 ex MLA’S  turned political  turncoats or give their  verdict in favour of the new Congress  candidates for that will not only decide the fate of the Sukhu government  which still has three and a half years remaining but also that of these 9 MLA’S ( 6 congressmen & 3 independents) who switched  sides and disobeyed the party whip in the Rajya sabha elections.
