While the Congress won the Jalalabad, Phagwara and Mukerian seats, the SAD came up trumps in Dakha. If the Congress managed to cause a major upset to the SAD in Jalalabad, considered to be a stronghold of the Akalis, the SAD dealt a blow to the grand old party by handing it a crushing defeat in Dakha.
