Mandi Election Result 2024 LIVE UPDATES: Vote counting for the Mandi Lok Sabha seat will begin at 8 am. While all 4 seats of Himachal Pradesh will be closely monitored, Mandi will be in the spotlight as actress-turned-politician Kangana Ranaut, a BJP candidate, makes her electoral debut. Kangana is facing competition from Congress candidate Vikramaditya Singh, son of 6-time Chief Minister of Himachal Pradesh late Virbhadra Singh and Pratibha Singh. Notably, Vikramaditya's mother, Pratibha, secured a seat in the Lok Sabha in the Indian general elections of 2004 by defeating BJP candidate Maheshwar Singh. She was also elected from the same seat in the 2013 (By Poll) elections and in 2021. So it will be interesting to witness if the first-time candidate Kangana can sweep the long-standing legacy of Singh's family.
