Meanwhile, Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar has thanked the people for the “grand victory” of the BJP in Adampur.
“I express my gratitude to the people for providing a ‘grand’ victory by blooming lotus in Adampur,” CM Manohar Lal Khattar tweeted in Hindi.

Bhavya Bishnoi won the Adampur assembly seat with as many as 67,376 votes, while the Congress-fielded Jai Prakash received 51,662 votes.

Earlier in the day, Bhavya Bishnoi had said that the polls were about the “victory margin”. He also exuded confidence that Adampur would be celebrating Diwali soon.
“This poll was not about winning or losing, but about the victory margin. With the blessings I’ve received from my Adampur family since the beginning, I am confident that people will once again celebrate Diwali within a few hours,” Bhavya Bishnoi had said.
