Congress wrests Gurdaspur Lok Sabha seat from BJP


Newsroom24x7 Network

Gurdaspur: Congress candidate Sunil Jakhar today won the Gurdaspur Lok Sabha bypoll by defeating his nearest rival of the BJP Swaran Salaria with a huge margin of 1,93,219 votes.

The Gurdaspur seat had fallen vacant earlier this year with the demise of the BJP MP Vinod Khanna.

Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh has hailed the Congress victory as a “total rejection of the anti-people policies” of the BJP and its ally the Shiromany Akali Dal and said it underlines the “political annihilation” of Aam Aadmi Party.
