Shimla, March 3

Indicating a change of guard in Himachal Pradesh Leader of Opposition Jai Ram Thakur on Sunday asked his party workers to get ready and said that anything can happen in the coming days.

Thakur said it was “difficult for the Congress to stay in power” as the political situation in Himachal Pradesh was grim for the party.

“Even the ministers are now walking out of the Cabinet meeting,” he added.

Thakur’s remarks come as high drama was witnessed during the Cabinet meeting yesterday with Revenue Minister Jagat Negi leaving the meeting in between and Education Minister Rohit Thakur also walking out after heated arguments.

The two ministers, however, later maintained that they had their engagements and Thakur returned after being pacified by Deputy Chief Minister Mukesh Agnihotri.

Thakur further said the Congress government had morally lost the right to be in power after nine MLA, including six Congress rebels, had voted in favour of the BJP during the recently concluded Rajya Sabha elections. The Leader of Opposition was talking to the media persons on the sidelines of the Tridev Sammelan here.
