Expulsions: Virbhadra Singh meets Chaudhary Birender Singh

Rival factions in the Himachal Congress are virtually at daggers drawn over the issue of taking disciplinary action against those who indulged in anti-party activities in the Assembly poll with Himachal Pradesh Congress Committee (HPCC) President Virbhadra Singh meeting AICC general secretary Chaudhary Birender Singh in Delhi.

With Birender Singh putting a stay on all suspensions, expulsions and removal from party posts ordered after Nov 4, the HPCC President held a closed-door meeting for about one hour with the AICC general secretary at his residence in Delhi.

It is learned that both leaders have discussed the issue of setting up of the three-member committee to look into all poll-related complaints. Besides Virbhadra, other senior state Congress leaders, rival of Virbhadra Singh, Asha Kumari and GS Bali, also met Birender Singh.

Viplove Thakur, who is member of the committee, said that she had held talks with the other members of the committee and added that committee will hold meeting to work out the modalities to be followed before we start scrutinising the complaints.

Disgruntle Shimla (Urban) District Congress Committee (DCC) leaders welcomed the decision.
