Shimla:

Former Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh’s wife and Himachal Pradesh Congress chief Pratibha Singh and her son Vikramaditya Singh congratulated party workers after defeating the BJP in the assembly elections.

Pratibha Singh said they would not forget the legacy of the former chief minister as the party fought the elections in his name and won. Vikramaditya Singh also won from Shimla Rural seat.

Vikramaditya Singh told NDTV, “We have been working on the ground for the last five years and we know that people are disillusioned with this so-called double engine government and we were quite sure that it will be thrown out of power. “

On his father’s legacy, Vikramaditya Singh said, “As a son, I miss him. But I can say that he is immortal and lives on in the hearts and minds of the people of the state. The results proved it.” His school of thought will be functional and very much visible in the next government.”

Earlier, Pratibha Singh told reporters that when Virbhadra Singh was the chief minister, “he gave a major part of his life to developing Himachal.”

Pratibha Singh said, “Wherever he went, if people asked whether they wanted a school, needed money for gardening, he would provide money and help people.” He said, “The people of Himachal gave a chance to the BJP and compared what Virbhadra ji did, but found that the BJP was not good at all.”

After initial setbacks, the Congress won 40 seats in Himachal Pradesh, a comfortable majority, with the BJP 25. The Aam Aadmi Party did not win a single seat.

In terms of vote share, the Congress was marginally ahead of the BJP with 43.88 per cent votes. BJP came second with 42.99 percent.
