Hindustan Times (Amritsar) - - Ht Punjab & Haryana -

Haryana BJP min­is­ter Ram Bi­las Sharma and for­mer Congress chief min­is­ter Bhupin­der Singh Hooda were in­volved in ban­ter dur­ing the fil­ing of nom­i­na­tions for the Jind by­poll last week. The en­try of for­mer min­is­ter Ran­deep Sur­je­w­ala in Jind by­poll gave an oc­ca­sion to Sharma to tease Hooda. A play­ful Sharma told Hooda: “Aapka kaanta nikal gaya (Your ad­ver­sary will now be out of the reck­on­ing).” The min­is­ter was re­fer­ring to Sur­je­w­ala who is con­sid­ered a chal­lenger to Hooda. The ex-CM was quick to re­tort by tak­ing a swipe at Sharma. “Tera kaanta to tab nikla maanonga Shar­maji jab Khat­tar ki chhutti kar­wayega,” Hooda said. Sharma was a con­tender for the chief min­is­ter’s chair but could not make it as the BJP high com­mand chose ML Khat­tar over him.
