Congress on Friday boycotted the Himachal Pradesh Vidhan Sabha proceedings with the entire legislature party sitting outside the Assembly as the impasse continued for the sixth day.

Congress MLAs, including the five suspended legislators, sat on a dharna outside the entrance of the Vidhan Sabha. 

Efforts are being made to resolve the stalemate as Chief Minister Jai Ram Thakur will be presenting the budget for the year 2021-2022 in the house on Saturday. 

Efforts are on to end the deadlock even though Chief Minster remains adamant on Congress tendering an apology to the Governor for their “misbehaviour” on the opening day of the budget session after the Governor’s address.
