Shimla, October 6

Congress candidate and former MP Pratibha Singh today said she would seek votes in the name of development works undertaken by her husband and former Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh.

Addressing a press conference here today, she said Virbhadra had dedicated his life to Himachal and its people. "He is physically not with us but his blessings and guidance will always remain with us," she said. The election would be "shraddhanjali" by the people of Mandi to her late husband.

"Though the election would be fought on issues like price rise and employment, I feel there is nothing wrong if we as a family and the Congress seek votes in the name of Virbhadra Singh, who ensured overall development of the state," she said.

Pratibha said she was hopeful that the people of Mandi will again give her a chance to represent them in the Lok Sabha. "I am sure Sukh Ram, who has been in the Congress, and the people of Mandi Sadar will support me," she said in response to a query if she was hoping to get support from Ashray Sharma, grandson of Sukh Ram who was in the race for the ticket.

When asked if it was a challenge for her to make a dent into Mandi, home turf of Chief Minister, she said Jai Ram Thakur had failed to ensure development, be it in Mandi or the state.
