Disgruntled Himachal Pradesh Minister Vikramaditya Singh recently met with Congress general secretaries Priyanka Gandhi Vadra and KC Venugopal in Delhi, according to sources.

The meeting, which lasted for over one-and-a-half hours, took place against the backdrop of the ongoing crisis in Himachal Pradesh.

The meeting between Vikramaditya Singh and Priyanka Gandhi Vadra comes after both he and his mother, Pratibha Singh, who is the Himachal Pradesh Congress unit chief, expressed their support for the six disqualified Congress MLAs who cross-voted in favor of the BJP in the Rajya Sabha election.

Sources indicate that during the meeting, Vikramaditya Singh raised several issues brought up by the Congress MLAs against the party-led state government.

Last week, Vikramaditya Singh sent shockwaves through the Congress ranks when he resigned as the Public Works Department Minister, citing alleged humiliation by the Sukhvinder Sukhu-led government and its own legislators.

As the son of former Himachal Pradesh Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh, Vikramaditya Singh also accused the state government of showing disrespect to his late father by not allocating a space for his statue on Mall Road.

Although there were rumors of him defecting to the BJP, Vikramaditya Singh later clarified that he would not press his resignation until he had a dialogue with the Congress leadership.

On March 1, Vikramaditya traveled to Chandigarh to meet the six disqualified Congress MLAs, according to sources. His mother, Pratibha Singh, also criticized the decision to disqualify the MLAs, stating that it was made hastily.

She emphasized that their only mistake was their desire to be heard, and that the Sukhu government should have listened to their concerns instead of resorting to disqualification.

In another development, on March 2, Vikramaditya changed his Facebook profile bio, removing the title “Himachal Pradesh Minister” and replacing it with “Himachal ka sevak (Worker of Himachal Pradesh).”

This move sparked speculation about his future within the party and fueled rumors about him potentially forming a new party following in his father’s footsteps. However, Vikramaditya Singh has not officially confirmed these speculations as of now.
