Jind, January 31: The bypoll for Haryana's Jind constituency was held on January 28. The counting of votes will begin today at 8 am. The constituency is witnessing a multi-cornered contest with prestige at stake for the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), the opposition Indian National Lok Dal (INLD), Congress and the emerging Jannayak Janta Party (JJP), formed by Lok Sabha MP Dushyant Chautala after the split in the INLD. The bypoll was necessitated following the death of INLD legislator Hari Chand Middha last August last year.

There are 21 candidates, including two women in the fray. Prominent among the candidates include senior Congress leader Randeep Singh Surjewala, who is also the party's sitting MLA from Kaithal, late Hari Chand Middha's son and BJP candidate Krishan Middha and INLD's Umed Singh Redhu. Around 75 percent voting was recorded in the bypoll.

There are nearly 1.70-lakh people voters, including 80,556 women in the constituency. A total of 71 polling booths set up in rural areas of the constituency and 103 polling booths set up in urban areas. Nearly 3,000 police personnel were deployed in the region to avoid any untoward incident. VVPAT machines were used for polling to ensure transparency.

The assembly elections in Haryana will take place this year in October. In the last elections, The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) won the majority in 90-member assembly and Manohar Lal Khattar was sworn-in as the chief minister.
