2017 Amritsar Lok Sabha By-Poll - Gurjit Singh Aujla (Congress)wins by 1,99,189 votes over Rajinder Mohan Singh (BJP) Saturday March 11,2017

Congress candidate Gurjit Singh Aujla won the Amritsar Lok Sabha seat on Saturday with a huge margin of 1,99,189 votes over nearest rival Rajinder Mohan Singh Chhina of the BJP. The by-poll was held simultaneously with the Punjab Assembly elections.

As per the results declared, the Congress candidate got 5,08,153 votes, BJP's Mr Chhina got 3,08,964 votes followed by Aam Aadmi Party's Upkar Singh Sandhu, who got 1,49,984 votes.

The seat had fallen vacant when Captain Amarinder Singh resigned last year to protest against the Supreme Court's verdict on the Sutlej Yamuna Link canal water sharing agreement.

The seat was earlier represented by Captain Amarinder, who had defeated the incumbent Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley in a high profile battle during the 2014 general elections.

The Amritsar Lok Sabha seat was earlier represented by Navjot Singh Sidhu, who won it on three occasions as a BJP candidate.
