Shimla, July 27

The core group of the ruling BJP in Himachal Pradesh met here on Wednesday to prepare the blueprint for 'Mission Repeat' for the Vidhan Sabha polls to be held later this year.

The issue of taking back party leaders and workers expelled for "anti-party" activities during the 2017 Assembly elections, including Chetan Bragta, who contested as an Independent in the Jubbal-Kotkhai byelection following the demise of his father, too was discussed.

The BJP is concerned over the possibility of certain leaders vying for the party ticket leaving the party, especially in Kangra district. With former BJP state president Khimi Ram and Indu Verma, wife of a three-time BJP legislator Rakesh Verma from Theog, joining the Congress, the BJP may have to mollify disgruntled leaders, say sources.

The crucial core group meeting was attended by Chief Minister Jai Ram Thakur, state BJP president Suresh Kashyap, former CM PK Dhumal, organisational secretary Pawan Rana, Rajya Sabha MPs Indu Goswami and Sikander Kumar and senior party functionaries.
