About Hamirpur:

As less as 4,54,293 people reside in this district, making it one of the least populated regions in the state. Carved out of the Kangra district in 1972 and now bordered by it, Hamirpur is the smallest district in the state of Himachal Pradesh. The Hamirpur region is famous as a rich educational hub in the state, enclosing top-class institutes and having as high as 89.01% literacy rate.  

The economy of the Hamirpur besides being reliant on an agricultural backbone as well as some small-scale industries, is primarily dependent on an expansive tourism sector.

Present Political Scenario:

Hamirpur will see BJYM national president Anurag Thakur defending his family pocket borough, which he should be able to do pretty easily. Congress doesn’t even have a strong candidate to put up against him and is depending on rebel BJP leader, a onetime protégé of former CM Prem Kumar Dhumal (Anurag Thakur’s father) who is also an independent MLA in the current assembly, Rajinder Singh Rana.

BJP had won this seat by a big 72000+ votes in 2009 by taking a lead in 14 of the 17 assembly segments. This time too, Thakur may have  go ahead in at least 11 assembly segments ,so it would be a herculean task to defeat him.
