Chandigarh, April 16

The Aam Aadmi Party on Tuesday announced four more candidates in Punjab for the Lok Sabha polls, fielding former MLA Pawan Kumar Tinu from the Jalandhar reserve constituency.

Besides Tinu, the Aam Aadmi Party named three party MLAs---Jagdeep Singh Kaka Brar from Ferozepur, Amansher Singh Kalsi from Gurdaspur and Ashok Parashar Pappi from Ludhiana parliamentary seat.

The announcement was made by party's national general secretary Sandeep Pathak in a post on X.

Brar represents the Muktsar assembly seat, Kalsi is a legislator from Batala seat while Pappi is an MLA from the Ludhiana Central assembly constituency.

Tinu left the Shiromani Akali Dal recently to join AAP.

With this announcement, the AAP has declared candidates on all 13 parliamentary seats in Punjab.

The ruling party in the state is the only one to have announced its candidates for all Lok Sabha constituencies in the state. BJP has announced its candidates for nine seats, including three announced today, Congress has announced its list of six candidates and Shiromani Akali Dal has announced its candidates for seven constituencies.

Even the BSP has announced its candidates for five Lok Sabha seats in the state. Even Akali Dal Amritsar, headed by Simranjit Singh Mann, has announced its list for nine candidates. All this makes it a multi cornered contest in the state.

The AAP, which is a constituent of the opposition INDIA bloc, is contesting the parliamentary polls in Punjab on its own.

Polling for 13 Lok Sabha seats in Punjab will be held in the last phase on June 1. With PTI inputs
