Won’t let Sidhu win

I will not let Navjot Singh Sidhu win election. He is a totally incompetent man. Capt Amarinder Singh, Ex-CM

Capt Amarinder Singh on Sunday announced the Punjab Lok Congress’s first list of 22 candidates, with Indian hockey team ex-captain Ajit Pal Singh among prominent names. “We have given a good set of candidates with a clear focus on winnability while ensuring due representation for various regions

and sections of society,” Amarinder Singh said at a press conference. “We are announcing 22 Punjab Lok Congress party candidates today. I will not let Navjot Singh Sidhu win election. He is a totally incompetent man,” he said.

Capt also hit out at Chief Minister Charanjit Singh Channi. He alleged Channi harassed a woman IAS officer by sending her inappropriate messages. “Channi had confessed that before me and then apologised to the woman officer,” he claimed.

The PLC will contest 37 Assembly seats in alliance with the BJP and the SAD (Sanyukt). Of the 37 seats allotted to it, 26 are in the Malwa region. The party’s list includes eight Jat Sikh candidates, four from the Scheduled Caste community, three from Other Backward Classes and five Hindus.
