The Mandi Lok Sabha seat in Himachal Pradesh is being contested by two of the state's wealthiest individuals: Vikramaditya Singh, a member of the former Rampur "royal family" and son of six-time chief minister Virbhadra Singh, and Kangana Ranaut of the BJP. 

Kangana depends on her star status, Prime Minister Narendra Modi, and the Ram temple. Vikramaditya hopes to carry on the legacy of his father, Virbhadra Singh, and state Congress president Pratibha Singh, Mandi's incumbent MP.

The Mandi seat is essential to the Congress since it is considered a stronghold of the Virbhadra family. Pratibha Devi Singh, the late leader's widow, retains the position. She won it for Congress in the by-election called after the death of then-BJP MP Ram Swaroop Sharma.

Elections in Himachal Pradesh are underway. The BJP, which won all four Lok Sabha seats in the state in the 2019 elections, hopes to repeat the feat this time.
