He said a delegation of Manali Vikas Manch had met CM Virbhadra Singh and HPCC president Sukhwinder Singh Sukhu. Dhami was hopeful of his return into Congress hold and securing a ticket from Manali seat.

Dhami had earlier contested from Kullu and Manali seats as an Independent candidate after he failed to get a ticket from the party. He contested on BSP candidate ticket from Manali in 2007. He was expelled from the party in 2012 for contesting against party candidate Bhuvneshwar Gaur from Manali seat both of whom lost to Govind Singh Thakur of the BJP.
