Three wins for Chautala family in election fray
Om Prakash Chautala, his elder son Ajay Singh Chautala won; other son Ranjit lost.

Chandigarh: Indian National Lok Dal (INLD) president and former Haryana chief minister Om Prakash Chautala on Thursday won both assembly seats he contested from -- Uchana Kalan, where he narrowly defeated Haryana's Finance Minister Birender Singh, and Ellenabad.

Chautala pulled off a tough win on Thursday when he defeated Birender Singh of the Congress in the Uchana Kalan assembly seat in Jind.

Chautala defeated Birender Singh by a margin of just 621 votes on this seat in what is perhaps the biggest contest among all 90 assembly seats in the state.

Birender Singh, a powerful Jat community leader from Jind district, was aspiring to be chief minister if the Congress returned to power.

Chautala won the Ellenabad seat in Sirsa district by over 16,400 votes, defeating his Congress rival.

A loss and a win

Om Prakash Chautala's son Ajay won his election but his younger brother Ranjit Singh, who contested on a Congress ticket, lost out in the Haryana assembly elections.

Ajay Singh Chautala, the elder son of former Haryana chief minister, won from the Dabwali assembly seat Thursday by defeating KV Singh, a close aide of Haryana Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda, by over 12,100 votes.

However, Chautala's younger brother, Ranjit Singh, who contested the Rania seat on a Congress ticket, lost the election to INLD candidate Krishan Lal by over 3,650 votes.
