Shimla, July 22 
Indu Verma, wife of Late Rakesh Verma, former BJP MLA from Theog, and BJP Zila Parishad member has joined the Congress party at the AICC headquarter in Delhi. She joined in the presence of Himachal Congress in-charge Rajiv Shukla, AICC General Secretary Mukul Wasnik and State President Pratibha Singh.
Indu Verma  joining of Congress is seen as a big trump card of opposition in Shimla district.  Political experts believe that Indu Verma’s family has a significant influence not only in Theog but also in the surrounding three assembly constituencies.  Theog’s fight will be tough after Indu Verma joining the Congress party.
Her joining the Congress party, may not only affect Theog, but Kusumpti and Chopal will get interesting.  Indu’s husband Late Rakesh Verma remained three-time MLA from Theog.  Her father-in-law was the DGP and people’s support has been there in the surrounding assembly areas, apart from politics.
It is worth mentioning that Verma’s husband had been getting more than 20 thousand votes every time in Theog.  It is believed that they have their own special vote bank.  Their house is in Balsan and therefore they will have the biggest impact in Chopal.  They have also been considered to have a good hold in Kotkhai and Kasumpti area.
