INLD’s Chautala Defeats BJP in Haryana

He defeated Govind Kanda of the BJP. Congress nominee Pawan Beniwal finished third and lost his deposits.

Chandigarh: Abhay Singh Chautala of the Indian National Lok Dal (INLD) on Tuesday won the by-election of Ellenabad in BJP-JJP ruled Haryana with a margin of 6,708 votes.

He defeated Govind Kanda of the BJP. Congress nominee Pawan Beniwal finished third and lost his deposits.

The bypoll was necessitated with Chautala’s resignation as the legislator in January in protest against three central farm laws.

After winning the bypoll in 2010, Chautala retained the seat in 2014 and 2019.
