Srinagar: Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah on Monday tweeted that Hisar wasn`t a Congress seat and Team Anna should have campaigned against the party in a region where it had a stronger standing.

"Does anyone else think Team Anna should have chosen a seat Congress was sure to win and then tested their ability to manipulate the result," he posted on micro-blogging site Twitter.

"Hisar wasn`t a Cong seat so it’s hardly indicative of anything in the scheme of things," he added.

Anna Hazare`s supporters had campaigned in Haryana`s Hisar town and asked the people not to vote for the Congress as it did not support the Jan Lokpal Bill.

Haryana Janhit Congress` Kuldeep Singh Bishnoi won the Hisar Parliamentary by-election on Monday, while the Indian National Lok Dal (INLD) was number two and the state`s ruling Congress was a distant third.
