Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) candidate Chandra Pant on Thursday won the Pithoragarh assembly by-polls by defeating Congress party's Anju Lunthi.
Speaking to ANI about her victory, Pant said, "BJP gave me confidence and people of Pithoragarh blessed me. I thank them for that."
"My priorities will be on development and I will fulfill the promises made by us. I ensure that I will work for the development of the region," she added.
The voting for the by-polls here took place on November 25.
The election was necessitated after the death of State Cabinet Minister Prakash Pant in June this year.
