After the general election on April 10 in Haryana, candidates of major political parties have begun calculating their winning formula.

Rao Inderjit Singh of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) said that he will have a clear win in six out of the total nine assembly constituencies in the Gurgaon parliamentary constituency.

On the other hand, Rao Inderjit Singh is not expecting the voters in Mewat’s three assembly constituencies to vote for him. But he is hopeful of a victory in Bawal, Rewari, Pataudi, Badshahpur, Sohna and Gurgaon.

“I will win by a good margin,” said Rao Inderjit, adding that he will thank every voter in a day or two, after which he may join poll campaign is the party asks him to.

Similarly, Rao Dharampal of the Congress said that he will get votes in good number in all nine constituencies. He said that his image of being an innocent, clean, hard-working and deep-rooted politician, unlike the sitting MP of this constituency, will act to his advantage.

“I am sure of getting good votes in Rewari, Mewat and Gurgaon,” said Rao Dharampal.

For the first time entrant into Haryana politics, Aam Aadmi Party is also sure of its win, claiming that it faces competition only from BJP. “We have received great response from people in Gurgaon. They are fed up of parties like Congress and BJP,” said Yogendra Yadav, AAP candidate.

Riding high on confidence and sure of votes in Mewat, Indian National Lok Dal (INLD) candidate has also assured his volunteers of a victory. “False promises made by other parties and the lack of development, has resulted in high dissent among the people. We are sure of our victory,” said Zakir Hussain, INLD candidate.

Although, reeling under the pressure of constant campaigning, political rallies and addressing people, the candidates of Gurgaon finally took a sigh of relief, on April 11, the day after the state went to the polls.

While some enjoyed the day with their family, others interacted with volunteers.
