BJP won the Rohroo Assembly seat and the Congress bagged Jawali in Himachal Pradesh as results of the two by-polls were declared on Tuesday.

While the Rohroo seat was held by the Congress, the Jawali was represented by the BJP.

In Rohroo seat Khushiram Balnatah defeated the Congress candidate Manjit Singh Thakur by 8,473 votes while in Jawali former State minister and Congress nominee Sujan Singh Pathania humbled BJP’s Chaudhary Baldev Raj by 5,249 votes, the State election office said.

By-elections on Rohroo in Shimla district and Jawali in Kangra district were necessitated due to resignation of Union Minister Virbhadra Singh and BJP’s Rajan Sushant respectively after they became MPs.
