The bypoll was necessitated by Khattar’s resignation as MLA from Karnal after his removal from the post of chief minister. Polling for the state’s 10 Lok Sabha seats and the Karnal assembly constituency was held in the sixth phase of the general election on May 25 and the results were declared on June 4.

Saini was sworn in as the chief minister on March 12. Khattar, who was fielded by the BJP from the Karnal parliamentary segment, won the seat.
