The voting for assembly elections in Haryana has begun on Monday at 7 am. Chief Minister of Haryana Manohar Lal Khattar took a cycle ride to reach the polling booth in Karnal.

 


Also, Manohar Lal Khattar traveled by Shatabdi Express from Chandigarh to his hometown Karnal in Haryana to cast his vote.

 

Khattar also took to Twitter and wrote, “First vote then refreshment. I am going to cast my vote.”

"I humbly request all citizens of the state that you too must exercise the franchise by visiting your polling station. Your one vote is crucial to form a strong government,” Khattar added.



 

In Harayana, there will be a contest between the BJP, the Congress and the Jannayak Janata Party for 90 seats.

In 2014, Khattar had won seats from Karnal with a margin of over 60,000 votes.

Congress has fielded Trilochan Singh, former Chairperson of the Haryana Minority Commission, against ML Khattar.

Candidates who will fight against Khattar in Haryana assembly elections are the former CM and Congress Legislative Party leader Bhupinder Singh Hooda (Garhi Sampla-Kiloi), Randeep Singh Surjewala (Kaithal), Kiran Choudhary (Tosham) and Kuldeep Bishnoi (Adampur) and JJP's Dushyant Chautala (Uchana Kalan).
