Subscribe to Oneindia News

Himachal Pradesh is all set to vote for Assembly Elections 2012 on Sunday, Nov 4. Sunday's poll will see voting for 68 constituencies in the state. Political heavyweights Prem Kumar Dhumal of Bharatiya Janata Party and Virbhadra Singh of Congress are jostling for attention of voters for whom the issue of price rise and corruption seems to have surpassed the anti-incumbency factor.

The Bharatiya Janata Party and the Congress are contesting all 68 seats while the Bahujan Samaj Party has fielded 66 candidates followed by the Himachal Lokhit Party (36), Trinamool Congress (25), Samajwadi Party (16), CPI-M (15), Nationalist Congress Party and Swabhiman Party (12 each), CPI (7), Shiv Sena (4) and 105 Independents.

Led by Chief Minister Prem Kumar Dhumal, the incumbent BJP is hoping to script history in Himachal Pradesh by going the Punjab way, where the Akali-BJP combine returned to power against historical projections. Counting will take place on Dec 20. In the 2007 poll, BJP had won 41 as against the Congress 23 while the independents and the BSP won three and one seat, respectively. Corruption in both the BJP and the Congress camps is a major election issue in the state.
