Congress leader Sukh Ram’s son resigns from Himachal Pradesh’s BJP government

Himachal Pradesh Power Minister Anil Sharma resigned from the BJP on Friday, days after the Congress fielded his son Aashray Sharma as its candidate from the Mandi Lok Sabha constituency. Anil Sharma was under pressure from the BJP after his father, former Union minister Sukh Ram, quit the saffron party and joined the Congress along with Aashray Sharma last month. “I have resigned as during a public meeting in my Assembly segment Mandi yesterday, the CM said ‘my minister (Anil Sharma) is lost somewhere,” Mr. Sharma said here after sending his resignation to Chief Minister Jai Ram Thakur’s office.
