“I am a former minister and four-time MLA contesting by-elections from Dharamshala on a BJP ticket. Recently, a video and media reports have surfaced in my constituency, falling under your jurisdiction, regarding a misleading speech delivered by chief minister Sukhvinder Singh Sukhu at Kutlehar area of Una district on April 4, 2024,” the letter written to SP Kangra reads.

He has also written a letter to Himachal Pradesh chief election commissioner Manish Garg, alleging misuse of power and potential corrupt practices in the tourism department under CM Sukhu.

Sharma, who is also a former minister, was among six Congress legislators who voted in favour of the BJP candidate in Rajya Sabha polls. They were disqualified later for violating the Congress whip.
