Arvind Kejriwal: AAP’s path in Haryana is not easy! The defeat in Adampur dashed Kejriwal’s hopes, with only 2.6 percent votes

Who got how many votes?- BJP’s Bhavya Bishnoi won the by-election by securing 67,492 (51.32 per cent) votes, while his nearest rival, Congress’ Jai Prakash – commonly known as JP – got 51,752 ( 39.35 percent) votes received. INIL’s Kurra Ram Nambardar got 5,248 (3.99 per cent) votes, while AAP’s Satinder Singh got only 3,420 (2.6 per cent) votes.

After Punjab, ‘AAP’ eyes on Haryana!- Let us tell you that recently in Haryana’s neighboring state Punjab"Aam Aadmi Party" href="" data-type="interlinkingkeywords">Aam Aadmi Party has formed the government with a huge majority and from that point of view this election is considered very important for AAP. Buoyed by the results in Punjab, the party contested the Lok Sabha elections in Haryana as well. Although the results were not encouraging, the party was successful in winning the post of president in the small municipality. The Congress was not in the fray with the main opposition then, as its supporters did not contest on Congress tickets. ‘AAP’ has got a little more than 10 percent votes. 

Adampur residents’ hopes dashed!- Although ‘AAP’ had high hopes from the Adampur by-election, perhaps that’s why convener Arvind Kejriwal and Punjab’s

During his election rally, Kejriwal had also mentioned how he studied in the neighboring state of Hisar during his school and college days. Arvind Kejriwal’s hometown Siwani (Bhiwani) is just a few kilometers away from Adampur constituency. Along with this, CM of Punjab Bhagwant Mann conducted a road show in the constituency during the by-election campaign. A few days before the polling, Kejriwal was also supposed to do a similar road show, but canceled it at the last minute citing the bridge collapse tragedy in Gujarat.

Inallo has also suffered a setback- With the third place in the Adampur by-election, the INLA, which is trying for revival from 2019, has also suffered a big blow. The INLO leadership may take its Adampur performance as a consolation prize for the party, which is still better than AAP, but the party was nowhere in the fray. Absence of significant vote share in the by-election is bound to demoralize party workers, especially when Om Prakash Chautala himself campaigned for candidate Kurra Ram Nambardar. Contrary to the expectations of the INLA leadership, a large section of Jat voters united behind Jai Prakash of the Congress. A major part of Nambdar’s total 5,248 votes is also from his native village Balsamand.

In the 2019 Haryana Assembly elections, the INLO managed to win only one seat, when Abhay Singh Chautala was elected from Elanabad seat. He resigned from the assembly in support of the agitators during the farmers’ agitation against the three agricultural laws, but narrowly won when he contested the Elanabad by-election in 2021. In 2020 also, INIL fared poorly in the Barda by-election, where the Congress defeated the BJP candidate.
