The Polit Bureau of the Communist Party of India (Marxist) has issued the following statement:
The Polit Bureau of the Communist Party of India (Marxist) congratulates the people of Theog assembly constituency in Himachal Pradesh for electing the CPI(M) candidate Rakesh Singha. This victory is all the more significant as it comes in 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 people’s interests in the Himachal Pradesh assembly.
The Polit Bureau conveys its greetings to all the Party cadres and supporters who worked for this success in the election.
