Kuldeep Bishnoi of the Congress leaves the Haryana Assembly and is set to join the BJP tomorrow.


Kuldeep Bishnoi, a Congress lawmaker, left the Haryana Assembly on Wednesday. Gian Chand Gupta, speaker of the Assembly, received Bishnoi’s resignation. He’s anticipated to ally with the BJP on Thursday.

After resigning as the representative for the Haryana district of Adampur, Kuldeep challenged Bhupinder Singh Hooda to run for and win the vacant seat. Notably, a byelection from the Adampur constituency in the Hisar district would be required due to his resignation.

“I now dare him to run for office in the Adampur constituency and win “Bishnoi stated after leaving his position as an MLA.

Soon after he cast a cross-vote in the June elections for the Rajya Sabha, the 53-year-old politician was removed by the Congress from across all party offices. Bishnoi, a four-time MLA and twice-elected MP, was upset that the party passed over him for the position of Haryana unit president during a restructuring earlier this year.

The ex Congress MLA previously stated in a tweet in Hindi that she had “had a long talk with my own people before commencing a new political adventure and as always got loads of love as well as encouragement about which I will forever be thankful for the citizens of Adampur.”

Bhupinder Singh Hooda had stated that Kuldeep Bishnoi was free to make a decision regarding his political future in response to a question regarding his joining the BJP. We are prepared for the bypoll, Hooda had said, adding that “He should really have resigned from the Congress the day he had cast a negative vote.”

The Congress has been rapidly losing younger party leaders in Haryana rather than developing a new generation of leaders for the state. A few years prior, Bhupinder Singh Hooda and Ashok Tanwar, the former president of the state party unit, had a falling out over policy.
