The Congress will hold parleys with party legislators and senior office-bearers to finalise the names of candidates for the Kangra and Hamirpur Lok Sabha seats and the six Assembly byelections.

Chief Minister Sukhvinder Singh Sukhu and Himachal Pradesh Congress Committee (HPCC) president Pratibha Singh will meet ministers, MLAs and party leaders to discuss the issue of finalisation of candidates. The tickets are likely to be finalised by the Central Election Committee (CEC) of the Congress on April 18 or 19.
