The closed-door brainstorming sessions with SAD candidates, who unsuccessfully contested the polls, lasted over five hours at the residence of SAD leader Bikram Singh Majithia. The aim was to analyse the lapses and boost the morale of leaders in a bid to bring the party back on track.
Those who attended the meeting included Ravikaran Singh Kahlon, Lakhbir Singh Lodhinangal, Rajanbir Singh Ghuman, Talbir Singh Gill and Baljit Singh Jalal Usman, Harmeet Singh Sandhu and Virsa Singh Valtoha.
Kahlon, who gave a tough fight to former Deputy CM Sukhjinder Randhawa on the Dera Baba Nanak seat, said the meetings were held to analyse the shortcomings. “The party president took feedback to analyse the lapses and devise ways to counter them,” he said. —
