Shimla, December 11
Himachal Pradesh Congress chief Pratibha Singh, who was seen as a strong contender for the post of chief minister following the party’s victory in the state, on Sunday confirmed that she would attend the oath-taking ceremony of Sukhwinder Singh Sukhu.
Sukhu was picked by the Congress high command as the CM candidate on Saturday, a day after the legislature party meeting conducted after a day-long political drama over the chief ministerial face passed a resolution authorising the high command to take the final decision on the matter.
CM-designate Sukhwinder Singh Sukhu met Pratibha Singh at her residence.
Following the meeting, Pratibha said it is her “prime duty” to take part in the oath-taking ceremony which will take place on Sunday afternoon.
