Candidate from Barsar dies, but polling to go on

Vinod Thakur, the Lok Gathbandhan Party candidate from Barsar in Hamirpur, died of a massive heart attack on Monday, while he was taking a bath in the morning.

The report of his death has been sent to the election observer by Barsar Returning Officer Dhanveer Thakur

There are no chances of cancelling the elections for this Assembly seat, since the Lok Gathbandhan Party is not formally recognised in the hill State, said the returning officer.

The election to the Assembly seat would take place as scheduled.
