Hamirpur, Dec 9 (UNI) Himachal Pradesh Congress Committee (HPCC) president Viplove Thakur today claimed that her party will come to power in the state after the assembly elections riding on the pro-people policies of the present state government.
Addressing mediapersons here, she said the people of the state had no faith in the BJP, which neither had any policy nor programme for them, while the Congress was known for its people welfare policies.
Ms Thakur said the Congress was contesting elections on the plank of phenomenal developmental in the state during the last four and half years, as against the previous BJP Government that had been responsible for widespread corruption in the state.
''The BJP is fighting a losing battle in the state and the formation of Congress government is imminent.'' Talking tough on the rebel candidates, she said those who had defied the party's decision have no place in the organization.
All the party rebel candidates who are contesting elections against its official candidates have been expelled for six years, she said.
The HPCC president said these people had no place in the party and would not be taken back as per the latest policy of All India Congress Committee (AICC) president Sonia Gandhi.
Replying to a question as to who would be the party's next chief ministerial candidate, she said, this would be decided by the party high command in consultation with the elected legislators.
The party would not like to get in to a situation wherein the projected leaders were rejected by the electorate after they had been named by the party, she added.
