Congress party looks all prepared to announce the last list of 9 candidates in Punjab for assembly elections . It seems like Senior Congress leader Manish Tewari might be on the losing side .
Former Union Minister Manish Tewari wants to contest from the seat in Ludhiana South but as per the IE, local MP Ravneet Bittu is contesting opposite him. So it looks like Manish Tewari would have to be disappointed. Pargat Singh who is a former Indian Hockey captain has gotten his ticket from the Jalandhar Cantonment. Pargat Singh is already a sitting MLA from the Jalandhar Cantonment.
Also Congress party has given a seat to cricketer-turned-politician Navjot Singh Sidhu for the polls.Former BJP MP Navjot Singh Sidhu on Sunday met Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi, after that the Punjab Congress party president and CM candidate Capt Amarinder Singh announced Sidhu’s inclusion in the Congress party. Navjot Singh Sidhu is contesting from Amritsar East constituency in upcoming Punjab assembly elections.
The former BJP MP Tweeted and termed it as beginning of a new inning. He also said that this is a state of Punjab,Punjabiyat so every Punjabi must win.
Navjot Kaur Sidhu’s wife yesterday declared that Sidhu has joined Congress party and she will campaign for her her husband.
