Deputy CM of Punjab and Shiromani Akali Dal's candidate Sukhbir Singh Badal has defeated Bhagwant Mann of Aam Aadmi Party(AAP) and Ravneet Singh Bittu (Indian National Congress) to win the seat in Jalalabad. He got 75,271 votes.
The main candidates from Jalalabad were Malkit Singh (BSP), Bhagwant Mann (AAP) and Ravneet Singh Bittu (INC), Surinder Singh (CPI), Sukhbir Singh Badal (SAD).
Sukhbir is the Deputy CM of the state and was fighting against Bhagwant Mann of AAP who won as an MP in 2014 from Sangrur.
In 2012, the state had voted in favour of the BJP-Akali Dal combine, bringing Parkash Singh Badal back to power.
This time the ruling combine faced off against a resurgent Congress and the debutant Aam Aadmi Party. The state was the first to vote among the five states that went to the polls this time. Elections to the 117-seat Punjab assembly were held on February 4.
Exit polls have predicted a drubbing for the BJP-Akali Dal combine in the state with the Congress and the AAP predicted to be neck-and-neck.
