Chandigarh: Even as it registered a surprising results in Punjab bagging four seats, the Aam Aadmi Party put up a dismal show in neighbouring Haryana, which happens to be the home state of party chief Arvind Kejriwal.
While AAP sprang a surprise in Punjab with its candidates defeating veteran leaders including those from Patiala and Faridkot seats, in Haryana where it was expected to do well in the wake of the party's performance in the last Delhi Assembly polls, it not only failed to live up to the expectations and but all its candidates also lost their security deposits.
The AAP had fielded candidates, most of them political greenhorns, in all 10 Lok Sabha seats in Haryana, but the party failed to open account and its candidates finished at fourth and fifth positions.
Yogendra Yadav, one of the party's most prominent faces, contested the polls from Gurgaon constituency. However, he finished a poor fourth bagging a total of 79,452 votes.
