Dabwali, Dr sukhpal: Punjab’s ruling Shiromani Akali Dal Thursday scored its first electoral win in Haryana with its candidate Charanjeet Singh getting elected from the Kalanwali (reserved) assembly seat.
Charanjeet Singh defeated Sushil Kumar Indora of the Congress by over 12,500 votes.
This is the first electoral victory for the Akali Dal in Haryana. The Akalis had an electoral alliance with the Indian National Lok Dal (INLD) in the state in this election even though its candidates fought under the Akali Dal symbol.
Indora had left the August this year to join the ruling Congress.
The only other Akali Dal candidate, Charanjeet Kaur, however, lost the Ambala city assembly seat to Congress candidate and former union minister Venod Sharma by over 35,500 votes.
