By-poll results Monday; all eyes on Hisar amid Hazare's 'maun vrat'

Hisar (Haryana): Kuldeep Bishnoi of the Haryana Janhit Congress (HJC) was Monday elected to the Lok Sabha, winning the Hisar by-election in Haryana, officials said.

Ajay Chautala of the Indian National Lok Dal finished second while Jai Parkash of the Congress came third in what was mainly a three-cornered contest.


Bishnoi, son of former chief minister Bhajan Lal, also has the support of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) for this election. The Hisar seat fell vacant in June following the death of Bhajan Lal, a three-time chief minister.

Jai Parkash, a three-time MP and Congress candidate is on third spot. The anti-Congress campaign by Team Anna also affected the prospects of the party, analysts said.

The election, held on Oct 13, witnessed 70 percent polling. About 9.3 lakh voters (nearly 70 percent) of 13.32 lakh registered voters had voted.

There were around 40 candidates, majority of them independent, in Hisar.
Tight security arrangements have been made to ensure smooth conduct of counting.

"No unauthorised person is allowed in a radius of 500 meters from all counting centres. Besides, police and paramilitary forces are deployed to keep the situation under control," said Haryana chief electoral officer Sumita Misra.

In the 2009 Lok Sabha polls, Bhajan Lal of HJC got 2.48 lakh votes. He was followed by INLD's Sampat Singh (2.41 lakh votes). Congress' Jai Parkash had stood third with 2.04 lakh votes.
