Hamirpur is the home district of Chief Minister Sukhvinder Singh Sukhu and former Union Minister and MP Anurag Singh Thakur, so this by-election has become a matter of prestige for both the leaders.

The results of the three assembly by-elections will not have any effect on the ruling Congress government, because the Sukhu government is in majority.

At present, the total number of MLAs in the assembly is 65. Of these, Congress has 38 MLAs and BJP has 27 MLAs. Whatever be the result of the voting, the Sukhu government will still have the majority.

By-elections are being held due to the resignation of three independent MLAs. These three former independent MLAs are contesting the elections on BJP ticket.
