Himachal Pradesh, a Northern state sends 4 MPs to Lok Sabha, hence not a very important state from central elections point of view. Congress and BJP are the main two parties. Since 1985, Congress and BJP have taken turns to run the state. Currently Virbhadra Singh of Congress is the CM. In 2009, when UPA II came back to power, BJP won 3 seats and Congress 1.
