Predicting the Congress victory in Haryana, former Rajasthan chief minister Ashok Gehlot said the party is fully prepared to face the polls and Capt Ajay Yadav would be elected for the seventh time from Rewari assembly segment.

Gehlot, who reached Rewari on Saturday to campaign for state minister Yadav, said the Congress MLA is a prominent Ahir leader from south Haryana who has always stood by his people and deserves to be elected again.

Dubbing the two consecutive terms of the Congress in the state a golden period, Gehlot said owing to large-scale development the party is receiving huge response from electorate and they would form the government again.

On his ties with Capt Yadav, Gehlot said he had kept coming to Rewari to campaign for the Haryana minister and electorate of the region too had always blessed him with victory and he hoped to replicate the same.
