In 2014, Khattar was nominated as BJP's candidate from Karnal constituency for the Haryana Legislative Assembly election, 2014. The party's workers and supporters in Karnal launched a signature campaign, asking the party leadership to field a local candidate instead of him.[8] His opponent, the Indian National Congress candidate, accused Khattar of being an "outsider" not native to Karnal. But Modi wave helped Mr. Khatter win elections by heavy margin.
