The District Congress Committee on Saturday released the list of party candidates for all 50 wards of the Hoshiarpur Municipal Corporation.

Addressing mediapersons on the occasion of releasing the list in the presence of Cabinet Minister Sunder Sham Arora, district president Dr Kuldeep Nanda said the election campaign had been formally launched after the release of the list. He claimed that the Congress would win all the 50 seats.

The Cabinet Minister said the Congress was contesting the MC elections on the issue of development and would have a landslide victory. Among others present on the occasion were Rakesh Marwaha, Chairman, Improvement Trust, Sarwan Singh, Rajneesh Tandon and other senior Congress leaders.

Other parties yet to announce their candidates

The BJP, Shiromani Akali Dal, the Aam Aadmi Party and various other parties are yet to announce the names of their candidates. The Shiromani Akali Dal is said to have agreed on the names of about 30 candidates, but the BJP has not finalised the names so far. The Aam Aadmi Party has also claimed to be contesting from 50 wards, but has not yet officially announced its candidates. Shiv Sena and other smaller parties claim to be contesting from all seats, but no one has released a list of candidates yet. Other parties are said to be releasing their lists of candidates in the next one to two days. Meanwhile, the Congress may face a major challenge in the days to come as many of the ticket aspirants, including some senior party leaders who have been denied a ticket, may pose a challenge to party candidates.
