Vikramaditya Singh Quits Himachal Cabinet; BJP Switch Speculation Grows

In a surprise move on Wednesday, Congress leader Vikramaditya Singh announced his resignation from the Himachal Pradesh Cabinet, indicating a strong possibility of joining the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP). The son of former Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh emphasized that the decision now rests with the Congress high command.

Cabinet Resignation

Vikramaditya Singh, a prominent figure in Himachal Pradesh politics, expressed his discontent with Chief Minister Sukhvinder Singh Sukhu’s administration, stating, “I have never said anything about the functioning of the government, but it is my responsibility to say it clearly today.” He highlighted issues within the government, citing attempts to stifle the voices of MLAs and a lack of consultation.

Concerns Over Recent Events

Singh expressed concern over recent events, especially the cross-voting that occurred during the Rajya Sabha elections, where the BJP candidate secured a victory over Congress stalwart Abhishek Manu Singhvi. He emphasized the importance of democracy and the mandate given by the people of Himachal Pradesh.

Future Course of Action

While resigning from his ministerial post, Singh stated, “Under the current circumstances, it is not correct for me to continue as a part of the government.” He mentioned plans for consultations with his constituents and supporters through video conferences to decide on the future course of action. There is strong speculation that Singh may join the BJP within the next 24 hours.

Emotional Tribute to Father

Singh also became emotional while recalling the contributions of his father, former CM Virbhadra Singh, in the state’s politics. He acknowledged that his father’s name played a significant role in the assembly elections and highlighted the collective effort that led to the formation of the current government, which has completed one year in office.

Buzz Over BJP Joining

The announcement of Singh’s resignation and the subsequent buzz surrounding his potential move to the BJP mark a significant development in Himachal Pradesh’s political landscape. His decision is poised to have implications for the Congress party and its standing in the state assembly.
