Constituency profile: Kurukshetra: Fierce three-way battle on cards in the land of Mahabharata

The seat finds significance with the fact that the outgoing MP, Nayab Saini, is now the chief minister and Jindal himself won twice (2004 and 2009) on the Congress ticket. His late father and noted industrialist, OP Jindal represented the seat once.

In electoral politics, the land of Mahabharata, Kurukshetra, is all set to witness another fierce battle. Though it’s a neck-and-neck fight between BJP’s Naveen Jindal and INDIA bloc’s Sushil Gupta, who is also the state president of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), INLD’s lone MLA and secretary general Abhay Chautala is also testing waters from the seat.
