| Monday | 1st April, 2019
Now, political equations have changed in Mandi parliamentary seat with the coming together of Sukh Ram and Virbhadra Singh.
Shimla: Two old war horses of the Congress — former chief minister Virbhadera Singh (85) and former Union minister Sukh Ram (92) — joining hands has made the electoral battle for Mandi parliamentary seat an interesting one.While Congress’s campaign will be spearheaded by Sukh Ram and Virbhadra, the BJP campaign will be led by chief minister Jai Ram Thakur.
For Thakur, winning Mandi will be a matter of prestige as this is the first time that the state has a chief minister from Mandi district.
He said in Mandi seat, despite their joining hands, rivalry between Sukh Ram and Virbhadra would damage the party, while the ongoing tussle between Sudhir Sharma, G S Bali and Pawan Kajal will ruin it in Kangra seat.
This is for the first time that candidates of both parties belong to Mandi district and are Brahmins.
