Lok Sabha elections 2024: Himachal Pradesh Public Works Minister Vikramaditya Singh is the Congress candidate for the Mandi Lok Sabha seat. He will contest against Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Kangana Ranaut in the upcoming Lok Sabha elections 2024.

"What have you contributed and what is going to be your role in the near future. What is your vision and planning for the future as a candidate from Mandi for BJP? You are trying to mislead and spoil the time of the people of Himachal Pradesh," Singh said.

"I have visited the Ram temple in Ayodhya on January 22nd and taken blessings of Lord Ram. I would pray Lord Ram to provide you a good sense. I would request that let's have a debate on the developmental trajectories of the state. I wish you good luck and wish you keep talking like this and using this kind of language," he added further.

On Himachal Pradesh CEC meeting, Congress leader Rajeev Shukla said, "In the meeting, we discussed how to win all 4 seats of Himachal Pradesh. We have decided on candidates for two seats. For the remaining two seats, the discussions will continue."
