Chandigarh, January 17

The BJP-led National Democratic Alliance is likely to get another ally as its talks with the Lok Insaaf Party (LIP) are in the final stage.

The LIP was formed ahead of the 2017 elections by Simarjeet Singh Bains and Balwinder Singh Bains, both legislators from Ludhiana.

LIP spokesperson Manish Vinayak said talks between the BJP leadership and Bains brothers over a possible alliance had been going on for a few weeks.

He said the party wanted 12 seats. “Our talks regarding an alliance are in the final stage. The announcement will be made shortly,” he said.

Former CM Capt Amarinder Singh-led Punjab Lok Congress and former Union minister Sukhdev Singh Dhindsa-led Shiromani Akali Dal (Sanyukt) have already joined hands with the BJP.

The LIP has a significant influence in Ludhiana. In the 2012 Assembly elections, the Bains brothers had won as Independent candidates. In 2017, they again contested successfully as LIP candidates.
