    If the Congress loses, then it will be a real comedown of its governance so far.

    Why have they lost heart?

    Surely, Anna is not greater than the Congress, if one went by what Renuka Chaodry, Abhiskek singhvi, salman Khurhsee, Manek Tiwari said and emphasised ad nauseum!

    and I think Congress is in power in Haryana and so has the complete Govt administration to dance to its tune!

    it was the hisar seat which was the real test, which is where the stakes were the highest.

    fair enough bhajan lal has this huge recall factor and there was a tie up between huc and bjp but congress coming a distant third, now that is saying a lot, mind you, haryana had grown on to be a bastion of congress in the two terms of congress there, and it is inld coming second and that too without any sort of electoral alliance, this indeed is a stunning electoral result.

    never thought congress would see such a dip in its popularity in haryana, i was ready to accept them a close second but not a distant third.

    indeed pranab babu it is a wake up call, and time to get the pulse of the nation.

    Congress polled 8% votes (~100,000 votes) less than 2009 polls. That is quite a dent and most likely due to Anna Team's appeal in Hisar :D.

    What is there to analyse. Results speak a lot. Congi was hit Anna, matters little who won.

    Hissar – Right action at Wrong Time, at Wrong Place

    Hissar poll results are out and BJP candidate Kuldeep Bishnoi has won the election with big difference where Congress has lost this seat and her candidate Jay Prakash faced big defeat. Hisar’s election result has alarmed whole Congress and inflicted them a serious damage in Congress’s image among public. Anna’s effect has altered the election result which is indicating Anna’s dedication towards Jan Lokpal Bill implementation and Congress’s falling reputation may continue in future. Hisar is the place from where Anna had appealed to public to not vote to the Congress few days back and his appeal worked and forced people to think that UPA government may fall if it didn’t re-assessed its strategy.


    Anna’s this action has raised several questions regarding Anna’s strategy which indirectly benefited BJP candidate Kuldeep Bishnoi. Another question rose by people that by appealing to public to not vote to Congress Anna has indirectly benefited wrong candidate. Kuldeep Bishnoi has several criminal charges and has a worse record and Congress candidate have comparatively clean record. HJC’s Kuldeep Bishnoi faces a case for attempt to murder. Besides, they are billionaires but have no defined business activity. Their affidavits made available by the Association for Democratic Reforms (ADR) on Tuesday put Bishnoi as the richest candidate in the Hisar by election. He has declared assets of over Rs 48.85 crore while Chautala has assets of Rs 40.16 crore.

    Bishnoi and Chautala’s assets have increased by over Rs 31.5 crore and Rs 10.19 crore respectively since 2009. Congress candidate Jai Prakash is way behind with declared assets worth Rs 3.16 crore. He has shown an asset increase of Rs 2.5 crore. He does not face any criminal charges, according to his affidavit. Beside that Bishnoi had land and other immovable property in his name. He had personal business activities including a Maruti dealership.

    Team Anna may have not any intention to benefit any other candidate but in fact their action has benefited Kuldeep Bishnoi which is definitely a wrong candidate. This time team Anna asked to vote against cleanest candidate in Hissar. Is this Anna’s mistake? Or there are some serious flaws in Team Anna’s strategy?

    Probably Anna took right decision at wrong time, at wrong place.
