Elections to the 90-member Haryana Assembly will be held on October 21 and results will be declared on October 24.
Speaking of the Adampur constituency, it is largely located along the Haryana-Rajasthan border.
Bhajan Lal won this seat in 2000 and 2005 and became the Chief Minister of the state. Starting in 1969, when he first won the Adampur seat, Bhajan Lal won the seat eight times. His wife, Jasma Devi, and son Bishnoi won the seat once each in 1987 and 1998.
Bishnoi, whose hotel in a prime business space of Gurgaon worth Rs 150 crore has been attached by the Income Tax department considering it as a ”benami” asset, is the MLA from Adampur, while his wife Renuka Bishnoi represents the Hansi seat in the state Assembly.
The couple had won the 2014 Assembly election as the Haryana Janhit Congress (HJC) candidates. The party was later merged with the Congress in 2016.
Their son, Bhavya Bishnoi, had unsuccessfully contested the Lok Sabha elections from the Hisar parliamentary seat as a Congress candidate.
