Congress legislators have vowed to stand firm against the BJP's 'politics of horse-trading' as by-elections approach in Himachal Pradesh.

By-elections are scheduled for July 10 in Dehra, Hamirpur, and Nalagarh, following the resignation of three Independent MLAs who later joined the BJP after voting in favor of the saffron party during the Rajya Sabha elections. A detailed strategy session chaired by Chief Minister Sukhvinder Singh Sukhu has bolstered Congress's confidence in winning all three seats.

The Congress Legislative Party (CLP) has criticized the BJP's alleged attempts to destabilize the elected government. In response, all Congress MLAs have pledged to resist these tactics and uphold the integrity of the political process.

The CLP also passed a resolution thanking the people and party workers for their support, citing improved vote percentages and Congress's victory in four out of six seats in the recent assembly by-elections, indicating public approval of the state's Congress government's policies.
