Amritsar, January 22
A leader Bhagwant Mann today dared Chief Minister Charanjit Singh Channi to contest election from the Dhuri Assembly seat from where he is in the fray.
On his maiden visit to the holy city on Saturday after being announced AAP’s chief ministerial face, Mann paid obeisance at the Golden Temple, Durgiana and Bhagwan Valmiki temples, besides offering floral tributes at the martyrs’ memorial at the Jallianwala Bagh.
Expressing his willingness to contest against Channi, Mann said he could not join the fray from Chamkaur Sahib as it was a reserved seat. Putting the ball in Channi’s court, he challenged him to contest from the Dhuri Assembly seat.
When asked about the river waters issue, he said, "We don't have surplus water, we won't share it with any state."
Elaborating on the objective of his visit, Mann said he had come to seek the blessings of the Guru sahib so that he could fulfil the responsibility entrusted by the party, its top leader Arvind Kejriwal and people.
Meanwhile, a group of Nihangs who wanted to seek Mann's assistance in the release of Davinder Pal Singh Bhullar, the convict in the 1993 bomb blast case, approached him outside the Golden Temple. However, he avoided meeting them, and his security team made a human chain around him. — TNS
