HP polls: CPI(M) dedicates Theog win to people

Press Trust of India, New Delhi, Dec 18 2017, 18:28 IST

The CPI(M) on Monday dedicated its victory in the Theog seat of Himachal Pradesh to the people of the constituency who "reposed faith in the party to protect their rights and work for their interest" in the state Assembly.

In a statement, the CPI(M) politburo said the victory of its candidate Rakesh Singha was significant as it came against the background of a highly polarised election between two major parties.

"This victory reflects the faith the people of Theog have reposed in the CPI(M) to protect their rights and work for their interests in the Himachal Pradesh Assembly," the party said.

Singha is one of the most prominent faces of the party in Himachal Pradesh.

He had in 1993 won the election from the Shimla seat and had secured around 10,000 votes while contesting from the Theog seat in the 2012 Assembly election.

This will be his second term as an MLA in the 68-seat Assembly.
