First-time legislator from Rohtak, Munish Kumar Grover, is a higher secondary pass out and Jagadhri legislator and speaker of Haryana assembly, Kanwar Pal, has not completed his graduation.

However, according to the official website of Haryana vidhan sabha,, the leaders are graduates in the arts stream.

According to his election papers, Bharatiya Janata Party's (BJP) legislator Kanwar Pal's highest educational qualification is BA-II from Kurukshetra University in 1979-80.

Similarly, independent candidate from Kalayat, Jai Prakash, has studied up to BA-II but the website shows him as a graduate.

JP, a former union minister, is better known as chief of the notorious green brigade during his years of support to Om Prakash Chautala and his party but surprisingly, he is the only leader to be referred to as 'Bhai Jai Prakash' on the website.

The state assembly was constituted on October 19 and one session of the vidhan sabha has already been held but the assembly's portal is incomplete and information of several candidates is not in accordance with the papers filed by them at the time of elections.

The individual web pages of several legislators are blank, including the photo columns. The page of chief minister Manohar Lal Khattar, who had won from Karnal, does not carry any vital information such as offices held, social activities and electoral details.

Similarly, the saffron party's legislator from Yamunanagar, Ghanshyam Das Arora, holds a degree in law but is shown as a graduate.

BJP's legislator from Sadhaura, Balwant Singh, is shown as BA (economics) whereas his election papers say the leader had studied BA from PU in 1970.

Two-time legislator of the Indian National Lok Dal from Jind, Hari Chand Middha, is a 'doctor' on the website while he is only a matriculate. Sources say the 72-year-old leader is a Registered Medical Practitioner (RMP).
