Chandigarh, April 26
Congress leader Pawan Kumar Bansal filed his nomination papers from Chandigarh parliamentary seat here on Friday.
Accompanied by his wife Madhu and Chandigarh Congress president Pradeep Chhabra, the 70-year-old former railway minister filed his nomination before the Deputy-Commissioner-cum-Returning Officer here.
His affidavit says his moveable assets—including cash in hand, bank deposits and investments in jewellery— are over Rs 1.29 crore. His wife, who works at Himachal-based Theon Pharmaceuticals Ltd, has Rs 2.55 crore in moveable assets. Bansal is a law graduate from Panjab University.
He holds immoveable assets worth Rs 5.60 crore, including his share of his house in Sector 28. The four-time parliamentarian owns a 2013 model car whose current value has been shown as Rs 4 lakh.
Bansal is pitted against BJP's sitting MP Kirron Kher and Aam Aadmi Party's Harmohan Dhawan among others.
Chandigarh will vote for its lone parliamentary seat on May 19. PTI
