Congress reshuffle soon: Sonia Gandhi
The Congress party might have won the Himachal Pradesh Assembly elections but the drubbing it has received in the Gujarat elections is a major setback for the ruling United Progressive Alliance ahead of the national polls in 2014. However, Mrs Gandhi, speaking to NDTV, said "I am very happy and pleased with the Himachal results." Even though the front runner for the Chief Minister's post is veteran Congress leader Virbhadra Singh who led the party to victory as the Pradesh Congress Committee chief, sources have told NDTV that it is not yet a decided matter.
