Chandigarh, December 2

The BJP today released its second list of nominees for the MC elections. Three sitting councillors are among those named in the list.

Councillor and former Mayor Arun Sood has left his ward seat for city Bharatiya Janta Yuva Morcha president Vijay Rana. He will contest from ward number 25.

“Unlike the Congress, which is promoting ‘parivarwad’, we are promoting youth. I am not fighting from ward number 25, but from all 35 wards as the party president,” he said. He said barring two, all party candidates announced so far were below 50 years of age.

Sitting councillor Maheshinder Singh Sidhu will contest from ward number 2, Shakti Prakash Devshali will contest from ward number 30 and councillor Sunita Dhawan from ward number 18.

Harjeet Singh, an agriculturist, has been given ticket from ward number 8. Ex-sarpanch of Dhanas Kuljeet Singh Sandhu has been named from ward number 14 while Yogita Vicky Shera, vice-president, District Mahila Morcha, will contest from ward number 19.

It may be mentioned here Devshali has replaced Sanjeev Grover, who was earlier announced as the party candidate from ward number 30.

Now, the party has declared candidates for 29 of the total 35 wards. Meanwhile, uncertainty continues over the candidature of three councillors and ex-Mayors Raj Bala Malik, Davesh Moudgil and Rajesh Kalia.
