MLA Jarnail

New Delhi : Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia on Thursday said that Delhi assembly's Rajouri Garden constituency voters were angry over AAP lawmaker Jarnail Singh's resignation to contest the Punjab assembly elections, which led to the party's poor show in the April 9 by-poll.

"People in the Rajouri Garden assembly constituency were angry after Jarnail Singh resigned... We tried to make them understand, but seeing the trends it seems they are still angry with the AAP," Sisodia told reporters outside his official residence.

However, he said it was just a by-poll, and added "we will keep preparing for the coming elections".

The poll panel said on its website that BJP candidate Manjinder Singh Sirsa won with 40,602 votes after the final and 17th round of ballot counting was held here.

The Congress' Meenakshi Chandela polled 25,950 votes while ruling AAP's Harjeet Singh stood at a distant third with 10,243 votes in this assembly constituency in Delhi.
