Elections 2022: Elections in Adampur witnessed a 75% turnout
Admapur, the family seat of former Haryana Prime Minister Bhajan Lal, will decide whether his grandson Bhavya Bishnoi can continue the 68-year legacy after switching from Congress to the BJP. Bhavya’s father Kuldeep Bishnoi, who led the family to the BJP, resigned as Adampur MLA when he defected, leading to this bypoll. More than 75 percent of voters exercised their rights in the elections. Counting is done in 13 rounds.
In Gopalganj, the RJD hopes to oust the BJP that has held her for nearly two decades now. It has pitted older party mohan Prasad Gupta against Kusum Devi of the BJP, whose husband Subhas Singh necessitated the election.
Bihar is seeing the first match – on two seats – since Nitish Kumar ditched the BJP and teamed up with Tejashwi Yadav’s RJD. In Mokama, RJD’s candidate was Neelam Devi, wife of Anant Singh, a strong politician who was disqualified after being convicted of illegally possessing weapons.
