#Himachal Pradesh   #HP Polls   #Left  

Himachal Pradesh was all about the bitter battle between the Congress and the BJP. Yet, in one assembly constituency, the Communist Party of India (Marxist) edged out both of them.

The election commission of India website showed that a CPI (M) candidate was leading in at least one seat in the 68 member assembly. It was not immediately known who that Left candidate was.

In the 2012 mayoral elections in Shimla, the CPI (M) had walked away with the mayor’s as well as the deputy mayor’s position.

In 1993, CPI (M)’s Rakesh Singha was elected to the assembly from Shimla.
