Haryana Janhit Congress blames ally BJP for defeat in polls

Days after it drew a blank in the Lok Sabha polls, Haryana Janhit Congress on Tuesday accused workers of its ally BJP of "not working honestly" during the campaigning for the elections.

"Some of the workers in BJP did not work honestly during the electioneering and they did not respect the alliance between Haryana Janhit Congress and BJP. On the other hand, we worked earnestly for the win of the alliance in the state," Renuka Bishnoi, wife of Kuldeep Bishnoi, told reporters.

HJC lost both the seats, Hisar and Sirsa, it contested, while its ally BJP won seven of eight seats it fought for. HJC chief Kuldeep Bishnoi lost to INLD's Dushyant Chautala from Hisar by a margin of 31,847 votes.

Kuldeep had quit as the party president after his defeat while his wife Renuka, the lone legislator of HJC, had resigned from the Haryana Assembly.

"We shall continue our work sincerely, but those who have ditched us shall pay for it. We were disheartened because we did not leave any stone unturned in the struggle for providing justice to the people," she said.

Renuka also charged INLD with rigging and booth capturing for winning the seat.
