Dharamsala, September 2

The Election Commission can announce byelections to three Assembly and one parliamentary seat in Himachal any time. The BJP is ready and will win all four byelections. The party workers are already in the poll mode while the Congress is a divided house, said state in-charge of the BJP Avinash Rai Khanna while addressing mediapersons here today.

He said that the party was also preparing for the Shimla Municipal Corporation elections. He added that the party workers at the booth level were working hard for the byelections.

Asked about protests by apple farmers in the state, Khanna said that apple growers were not getting good prices as the crop was damaged due to a hailstorm. "The prices of apple in Himachal have dropped as the crop was damaged and not for any other reason. The state government is doing its best to help the apple farmers," he added.

Asked about the rising prices of petrol and diesel and other commodities in the country, Khanna said that it was due to the pandemic. The Union Government was working to control the price rise and soon the results would be visible, he added.

"The state government has done a commendable job by achieving the 100 per cent first dose target. Prime Minister Narendra Modi has praised the state government's vaccination campaign," he said.
