Palampur: Congress on Sunday announced to take out a "foot march" from Solan to Shimla and gherao the Himachal Pradesh Assembly during the monsoon session against the acts of "commission and omission" of the BJP government.

The decision was taken at one day "conclave" of the state unit of the party in which senior Congress leaders, including Union minister Virbhadra Singh, participated.

The meeting discussed the strategy to oust the BJP in the next year Assembly polls and decided to submit a "charge sheet" against the state government to the President in two months.

A charge sheet drafting committee has already been constituted under the chairmanship of former minister G S Bali and it has already started the work.

The meeting adopted five resolutions criticising "ganging" of various forces against AICC president Sonia Gandhi, alleged shady of the BJP government in allowing sale of land in the name of private universities and the wrong policies of the government for a deficit of Rs 26,000 crore.

AICC in-charge of Himachal Pradesh Birender Singh said Congress is gearing up for the elections next year and will expose the misdeeds of BJP.

He said the party campaign would be collectively spearheaded by VB Singh, HPCC president Kaul Singh and leader of the opposition Vidya Stokes.

Attacking Ramdev, Birender Singh said the yoga guru must explain to the nation how he mustered assets worth Rs 1,400 crores in a short span.

However, indiscipline and sloganeering marred the conclave as some youth members raised "pro-Virbhadra Singh" slogans, when AICC general secretary and in-charge for Himachal, Birender Singh, arrived at the venue.
