The Congress has 36 seats in the 68-member Himachal Pradesh Assembly, while BJP has 26.

Meanwhile, eyeing the assembly polls, the Bharatiya Janta Party (BJP) and Congress have begun rigorous election campaign in Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh.

In particular, the contest in Gujarat, Modi's home state where the BJP has been in power for 22 years, will be keenly watched for signs of voter reaction to some of his radical economic policies that made doing business far more complicated, especially for small and medium companies.
