BJP’s exam by-election in Haryana?
By-election has also been announced for Ellenabad seat of Haryana. INLD leader Abhay Chautala was the MLA from this seat but he resigned from the legislature this year in support of the farmers’ movement. It is being said that the ongoing farmers’ agitation against the agricultural laws can cause major damage to the BJP. In such a situation, this seat of Haryana can prove to be a test for BJP.
