Sukhu’s meeting with the Dalai Lama in Dharamshala came four days after the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) candidate from Mandi, Kangana Ranaut faced protest during her campaign in Kaza, the headquarters of Spiti which comprises the Mandi parliamentary constituency.

She apologised for sharing the post.
