After submitting her nomination, Ranaut said, "Today I have filed nomination from Mandi LS seat. It is a matter of pride for me to have the opportunity to contest from Mandi...I have been successful in Bollywood and I am hopeful that I will get success in the field of politics as well..."

Polling in Himachal Pradesh, scheduled for June 1, will not only determine the Lok Sabha representatives from four seats but also elect members for six assembly seats vacated by dissident Congress lawmakers. The BJP, which won all four Lok Sabha constituencies in the state in the 2019 elections, aims to repeat its success this time.
