He said the HVC was a recognised party, but it had not fielded any candidate as it was part of the NDA.

Meanwhile, former chief secretary and HPCC executive member Amar Nath Vidyarthi has urged the Election Commission not to postpone the elections in Lahaul valley and Spiti as the snow had melted and vehicular traffic had been restored.

BJP candidate Maheshwar Singh, who was stranded in the snowbound Lahaul valley for four days, had requested the EC to defer the polls in Mandi constituency as campaign in the tribal segments was being hampered by heavy snowfall and disruption of road traffic and communication links.
