Bharatiya Janata Party's Yogeshwar Dutt has lost from the Baroda constituency in the 2019 Haryana Assembly elections. The former wrestler, who joined the BJP last month, was making his electoral debut in the polls and was in a tough three-way fight with Srikrishan Hooda of the Congress and the Jannayak Janata Party's Bhupinder Malik.
However, Dutt lost by over 4,000 votes from the constituency. Hooda has won the seat.
Dutt won a bronze medal in the 60 kilogram freestyle wrestling in the 2012 London Olympics, becoming only the third Indian after Kashaba Jadhav and Sushil Kumar to secure a medal on the wrestling mat at an Olympics.
