Anti-incumbency feeling significant factor in Haryana polls, says Birender Singh

New Delhi, Sept. 16 (ANI): Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Chaudhary Birender Singh said that the upcoming legislative assembly elections in Haryana will be decided with the anti-incumbency feeling in the state a significant factor to decide the results.

Speaking to ANI, Singh said, “The result in an election isn’t a matter of confidence. What is important is that we keep ready at all times. The ones who will really give the result are the voters. The anti-incumbency feeling will be an important factor in the Haryana state elections.”

He, however dismissed that the Haryana state elections, which will be held on October 15, would be affected by the poor showing in the recently concluded bypolls. “The results of the by-elections are not important because the usual trend is that the ruling party of a state will usually win from the constituencies going to polls later. Gujarat and Uttar Pradesh are good examples. All that these results have done is creating a talking point for the Opposition.”

The counting for the by-poll results in 33 constituencies across 10 states took place today, with the BJP bagging only two out of 11 seats in UP; only one out of four seats in Rajasthan and winning seven out of nine seats in Gujarat. (ANI)
