Congratulating Singh on his victory, Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath tweeted, "The credit for this victory goes to the constant and tireless hard work of our Hamirpur party workers." He also expressed gratitude to the voters and claimed that the public's faith was strengthened because of Prime Minister Narendra Modi's mantra of 'sabka sath, sabka vikas'.


A total of nine candidates, including the Congress's Hardeepak Nishad and Naushad Ali of the Bahujan Samaj Party, were in the fray. Nishad got 16,096 votes while Naushad Ali secured 28,790 votes.
