Mandi, November 2

The Congress is upbeat after the victory in the Mandi byelection today. Since 2014, the BJP had retained the seat with it. In the last Lok Sabha election, BJP candidate Ram Swaroop Sharma had won with a record margin of 4.5 lakh votes. It was a challenging task for the Congress to wrest the seat from the BJP.

As soon as the result was declared, a large number of Congress supporters turned up in the town to celebrate the victory of Pratibha Singh. She arrived here this evening from Shimla. She was accompanied by her son Congress MLA from Shimla (Rural) Vikramaditya Singh and Leader of the Opposition Mukesh Agnihotri.

She took her election result certificate from the Returning Officer. The Congress supporters were seen dancing and singing to the tunes of dhol and drums.

Talking to mediapersons, Pratibha Singh expressed her gratitude to the people of Mandi. She said it was the result of development works done by former Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh. Apart from this, inflation was also a major issue in this election, which affected the common man.

She said, "Being an MP, I will raise all issues related to the public with the state and central governments."
