Chandigarh: Internal bickering in the Haryana Congress today came to the fore with the party "unanimously" passing a resolution demanding action against all those who "sabotaged" the party nominees' chances in the Hisar Lok Sabha bye-election.

Ruling Congress nominee Jai Prakash finished a poor third failing to save even his security deposit in the bypoll in which the HJC-BJP combine nominee Kuldeep Bishnoi won defeating his nearest rival Ajay Singh Chautala (INLD) by 6,323 votes.

The resolution demanding action "against all those who sabotaged party candidate's prospects" was passed unanimously at a General Body meeting of the Haryana Pradesh Congress Committee (HPCC) presided over by state unit Chief Phool Chand Mullana and attended among others by Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda, who had got the nomination for Jai Parkash.

A party spokesman said the resolution did not name anyone except saying that those holding responsible positions within the party had not acted in a responsible manner and sabotaged party nominee's chances.

The resolution along with a detailed report on the party's performance in the bypoll would be sent to Congress General Secretary B K Hariprasad, who is also the incharge of party affairs in Haryana.

"The High Command should take action against all those who sabotaged the party's prospects at Hisar," the resolution demanded.
