‘Kangana Ranaut go back’: Congress workers show black flag to BJP’s Mandi pick | India News – Times of India


NEW DELHI: Congress workers showed black flags and raised slogans “Kangana Ranaut go back” against BJP Mandi candidate Kangana Ranaut during her visit to Kaza in the Lahaul and Spiti district of Himachal Pradesh on Monday.
Jairam Thakur, addressing the incident, told ANI, “We went to Kaza, a town in Lahaul Spiti. Kangana Ranaut, the BJP candidate from Mandi, was with me.It is unfortunate that the Congress workers attacked our convoy, attempted to stop the vehicles, and pelted them with stones. The district administration is responsible for the lapse. I condemn this incident.”
Thakur added, “They allowed an event next to our public rally venue. Authorities acted under the pressure of the Congress government. Strict action should be taken against them.”
Ranaut, along with former chief minister and leader of opposition Jairam Thakur, addressed a public rally in Kaza.
During the event, people raised slogans despite police being present to maintain law and order. Ranaut has not yet responded to the incident.
Polling for all four Lok Sabha seats in the state will be held on June 1. Voting for the fifth phase of the ongoing Lok Sabha elections 2024 began on Monday morning across 49 parliamentary constituencies in six states and two Union Territories amid tight security and arrangements.
The Lok Sabha elections are being conducted in seven phases, from April 19 to June 1. The counting and results will be declared on June 4. The Narendra Modi-led BJP is seeking a third term in power, while the opposition INDIA bloc aims to stop them.
