Indian National Congress's Sukhpal Singh Bhullar has won the seat in Khem Karan, constituency No. 22 of the Punjab Legislative Assembly.

The main candidates from Khem Karan were Bikramajit Singh (AAP), Sukhpal Singh Bhullar (INC) and Harjinder Singh (IND) and Virsa Singh (SAD).

Sukhpal Singh Bhullar is the son of Former MLA Gurchet Singh Bhullar and won the seat by defeating SAD's fire brand Akali leader, Virsa Singh Valtoha.

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.
