The decision of Kangana Ranaut to contest from Mandi, Himachal Pradesh, a region with historical political significance and her hometown, adds a layer of intrigue to the upcoming Lok Sabha elections.

The timeline of Lok Sabha 2024 polls

The upcoming polls in Himachal Pradesh, scheduled for June 1, will not only witness the electoral battle for four Lok Sabha seats but also entail the contest for six Assembly seats that fell vacant following the disqualification of Congress MLAs. The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), aiming to maintain its dominance in the region, eyes victory once again after securing all four LS seats in 2019.


The anticipation surrounding the election results will culminate in the counting process slated for June 4. The Mandi constituency, in particular, holds symbolic significance, being considered a bastion of the late former Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh's family. The seat, currently held by Pratibha Devi Singh, the late leader's wife, witnessed a bye-election in 2021 following the demise of BJP MP Ram Swaroop Sharma.
