I am not winning because of Anna: Bishnoi
Hisar (Haryana): As he raced towards victory in the Hisar Lok Sabha by-election, Haryana Janhit Congress (HJC) candidate Kuldeep Bishnoi said Monday that he owed nothing to Team Anna.
"I attribute it only to my father and the (alliance with) BJP (Bharatiya Janata Party)," Bishnoi told reporters here, as officials placed him on the victory lap over his nearest rival.
My father has done a lot for Hisar and Haryana, he said, adding the contest was only between him and INLD’s Ajay Chautala.
By the time Team Anna began campaigning in Hisar against the Congress for its refusal to back the Jan Lokpal Bill, people had decided to vote for him, he said.
He further stated that Team Anna was not supporting him, but was only against Congress.
Bishnoi, son of former Haryana chief minister Bhajan Lal, added that he respected anti-corruption crusader Anna Hazare and would vote for the Jan Lokpal Bill in Parliament.
