Karnal election result updates 2019: Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar has won the election from Karnal assembly constituency with more than 44,000 votes. He contest the election against Congress’s Tarlochan Singh. When Khattar took a train from Chandigarh to Karnal and then rode a bicycle to a polling booth to cast his vote, he apparently tried to gauge the people’s mood on the day of the election. After casting his vote, Khattar exuded confidence that not only he would retain his own seat, the BJP will return to power with an overwhelming majority.

In the outgoing 90-member Haryana Assembly, the BJP had 48 MLAs. It was for the first time in Haryana that the BJP had formed government on its own in 2014.

Although issues like the abrogation of Article 370 from Jammu and Kashmir, Triple Talaq law were used extensively by the BJP to seek votes in state assembly elections, political observers believe the Khattar government has also performed satisfactorily on the ground to win people’s support. Khattar himself undertook a 22-day ‘Jan Ashirwad Yatra’ travelling across the state to showcase his government’s works in the last five years.

Khattar, who has a bachelor’s degree from Delhi University used to run a shop near Sadar Bazar in Old Delhi before deciding to join the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) in 1977. He was a full-time pracharak till 1994 when he joined the BJP. He contested election for the first time in his long political career in 2014 from Karnal and won by massive margin of over 63,000 votes.
