SAD-Badal Candidate Joginder Pal Jain wins Moga By polls with 18,855 votes

The ruling Shiromani Akali Dal Thursday won the Moga assembly seat by-election in Punjab. Akali Dal candidate Joginder Pal Jain defeated his Congress rival Vijay Kumar Sathi by 18,845 votes.

Jain polled 69,265 votes against 50,420 polled by Sathi. Jain led in all rounds of counting Thursday. Over 71 percent electorate of the Moga constituency cast their franchise in Feb 23 poll.

Jain had quit the Congress party and the Moga assembly seat December last year and joined the Akali Dal.

He had been elected from the Moga cosntituency in the January 2012 assembly elections on a Congress ticket. Moga was generally considered a Congress stronghold.

The Congress, led by former chief minister Amarinder Singh, had campaigned hard for Sathi but the party lost.

Punjab Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal described the victory in the Moga by-poll as “a forceful mandate for the agenda of peace, development and communal harmony, and a victory of clean politics over negative tactics such as mudslinging, character assassination and issue-less policies”.

“The problem with the Congress is that it has no agenda except Akali bashing. They are refusing to learn that people want results and they want to hear about policies and programmes on development and progress of the state, and not about our personal ego clashes. People have repeatedly rejected the politics of hate and mudslinging and voted for development,” Badal said.

Sources says, tough fight between SAD and Congress and Margin will in hundreds only

Counting begins for Moga By election, tight security in Moga. Tough fight between SAD-Badal candidate Joginderpal Jain and Congress candidate Vijay Sathi.

 

Tight security in Moga.  It is expected counting will be over in 10 rounds and final results will come around 12:00pm

Braving heavy rain Saturday, over 70 percent of the electorate in Punjab’s Moga assembly seat cast their franchise.

People lined up at various polling booths to cast their votes in the by-election, officials said.

Ten candidates, including four Independents, were in the fray.

The main contest was between the ruling Shiromani Akali Dal and the opposition Congress. The Akali Dal fielded Joginder Pal Jain against Congress candidate Vijay Kumar Sathi.

Jain had quit the assembly seat and the Congress Dec 26 and joined the Akali Dal. He was elected from the seat on the Congress ticket in the Jan 30 assembly election last year. His resignation forced a by-election.

Jain was elected as a legislator on the Congress ticket from here twice — in 2007 and 2012.

The People’s Party of Punjab (PPP), led by former finance minister Manpreet Badal, had fielded Ravinder Singh Dhaliwal in the contest, ignoring a move by the Congress leadership to put up a joint opposition candidate.
