Winning the sixth straight election to HP Vidhan Sabha in the tough condition Thakur Mahender Singh has emerged as an unchallended leader of the Dharampur. In HP assembly election 2012, where many incumbent ministers of Dhumal’s (BJP) govt have lost, Mr Thakur defeated Chander Shekhar of Indian National Congress (INC) by a margin of more that thousand votes.
The remaining 5 candidates did not make any impact and lost their security deposits. Chander Shekhar can draw a consolation from this election that he put up a brave fight and made the very vote count. He had put a tough challenge but lost.
Many congratulation to Mahender Singh. Hope that he will fulfil the promises made during elections and live up to the expectation of people of Dharampur.

MAHENDER SINGH – Bharatiya Janata Party – 24029
