Congress party office bearers, members, district and block presidents, vice-presidents, treasurers, general secretaries and members of frontal organisations of the Shimla Parliamentary constituency would be participating in the meeting, said party spokesperson Naresh Chauhan.
“The meeting will be presided over by state Congress president Sukhvinder Singh Sukhu, and chief minister Virbhadra Singh will also attend the meeting,” said Chauhan.
Besides, All India Congress Committee (AICC) secretary and co-incharge of the Himachal affairs Raja Ram Pal Singh would also attend the meeting, he added.
Irrigation and public health minister Vidya Stokes, social justice and empowerment minister Dhani Ram Shandil and legislators and former legislators from the Shimla parliamentary segment would also be present in the meeting, said Chauhan.
Earlier, similar meetings had been organised in the Hamirpur and Kangra Parliamentary constituencies to chalk out strategy for the upcoming Lok Sabha elections.
