Tough poll battle on cards for BJP in Thanesar after Ashok Arora joins Congress
There are over 20 candidates in the fray for Haryana's Thanesar Assembly seat, but the fight to watch out for would be between BJP MLA Subhash Sudha and Ashok Arora, who recently switched to Congress from INLD, to challenge the sitting legislator in his pocket borough.
Both Sudha and Arora joined active politics in early 90s as workers of the Indian National Lok Dal (INLD). While Arora was elected as MLA from Thanesar in 1990 through a by-election, Sudha became its municipal council chairman in 1994. (PTI)
