Indian National Congress's Fatehjang Singh Bajwa has won in Qadian defeating SAD's Sewa Singh and AAP's Kanwal Preet Singh.

Qadian is the International headquarters of the Ahmadiyya community. It is the stronghold of Bajwa clan. Fatehjang Singh Bajwa is the brother of former Punjab Congress chief and incumbent RS member Pratap Bajwa.

The main candidates from Qadian were Mohinder Singh (BSP), Kanwal Preet Singh (AAP), FatehJang Singh Bajwa (INC) and Sewa Singh (SAD).

In 2012, the state had voted in favour of the BJP-Akali Dal combine, bringing Parkash Singh Badal back to power.

This time the ruling combine faced off against a resurgent Congress and the debutant Aam Aadmi Party. The state was the first to vote among the five states that went to the polls this time. Elections to the 117-seat Punjab assembly were held on February 4.

Exit polls have predicted a drubbing for the BJP-Akali Dal combine in the state with the Congress and the AAP predicted to be neck-and-neck.
