Bypolls on November 3: Bishnoi’s son, former Congress MLA, BJP announces candidates for by-polls in 3 states

The BJP on Saturday fielded Bhavya Bishnoi, the 29-year-old son of party leader Kuldeep Bishnoi, as its candidate for the Adampur Assembly by-poll in Haryana. The party has also fielded 26-year-old Aman Giri from Gola Gorakhnath seat in Uttar Pradesh’s Lakhimpur Kheri district and K Rajagopal Reddy from Munugode Telangana for the November 3 by-polls. The counting of votes for the assembly by-polls will be held on November 6.

Kuldeep Bishnoi, a senior Haryana politician, and Reddy were Congress MLAs from Adampur and Munugode, respectively, before resigning to join the BJP. Aman Giri is the son of Arvind Giri, the BJP MLA from Gola Gokarnath, who died last month, the constituency necessitating a by-election.

Adampur is a Bishnoi stronghold maintained by the family for the past five decades.

Soon after the party announced his son’s candidature, Kuldeep Bishnoi tweeted: “Heartfelt thanks to all the top leadership of the party for making Bhavya Bishnoi the Bharatiya Janata Party’s candidate in the Adampur poll.”

Bhavya Bishnoi had contested Hisar’s 2019 Lok Sabha elections on a Congress ticket but was unsuccessful. He also left Congress in August.

Aman Giri will face 52-year-old former Samajwadi Party (SP) MLA Vinay Tiwari in the by-election.

According to BJP sources, the party has fielded Aman hoping to benefit from the “sympathy factor”. Aman’s father, Arvind Giri (65), was elected MLA in the 2022 assembly elections and was earlier elected as a BJP candidate in the 2017 elections. In the past, he was elected MLA from the Hyderabad seat on the SP ticket thrice in 1996, 2002 and 2007, which was later renamed Gola Gokarnath as part of the delimitation. In 2012, he contested on a Congress ticket but lost. Later he joined BJP.
