Mandi Lok Sabha election

Himachal Pradesh's Mandi Lok Sabha seat will witness a clash of the two richest titans--Congress party's Vikramaditya Singh, scion of the erstwhile Rampur "royal family" and son of six-time chief minister Virbhadra Singh, and BJP's Kangana Ranaut on June 1.

Kangana is banking on her celebrity image, Prime Minister Narendra Modi, and Ram temple factors.

Vikramaditya is hoping to sail through riding on the legacy of his father Virbhadra Singh and state Congress chief Pratibha Singh, the sitting MP from Mandi.
