Anna v/s Congress; result today

hisar-bypollNew Delhi: The big day for which all have been waiting with batted breath is here. Counting of votes has begun and the result of the Hisar bypoll election will be declared today. The media sees this as a war between the political parties and Anna Hazare.

The anti corruption crusader had asked the citizens of Hisar to vote against the congress. The Anna effect made the nation sit up and take notice. No matter how much the Congress tried to pretend otherwise Anna has raised the stakes for the party. The big question is whether the voters will respond to Anna Hazare’s call to defeat the Congress, making Hisar a turning point.

Kuldeep Bishnoi of the Haryana Janhit Congress stated that Anna should have targeted all corrupt politicians and political parties and not Congress alone. Congress’ Jai Prakash claimed the Anna factor has failed and has asked Aravind kejriwal to be careful for he believes that it won’t be long before Aravind would face the same fate as that of Prashanth Bhushan.

It is perhaps one of the most closely-watched by-elections in recent times.
