Dharamsala: Bharatiya Janata Party(BJP) national president Amit Shah will address a 'Hunkar' rally in the poll-bound state of Himachal Pradesh, in Kangra on Friday. Himachal Pradesh will go to polls late this year.
Union health minister JP Nadda, state BJP in-charge Mangal Pandey and the BJP MP of the area Shanta Kumar on Thursday visited the rally site in Dharamsala.
"BJP will soon declare the list of candidates for Himachal elections, and only those will be considered who have a winning potential," Nadda said.
Nadda further said that prime minister Narendra Modi's visit to the area is under consideration and "he might address a rally at Dharamshala very soon".
The prime minister addressed a rally in Himachal Pradesh state in April.
