SAD declares two more candidates for Punjab Assembly polls
The Shiromani Akali Dal on Friday announced names of two more candidates for the Punjab Assembly polls next year, with the party’s senior leader Prem Singh Chandumajra to contest from Patiala’s Ghanaur.
Chandumajra had unsuccessfully contested the 2019 Lok Sabha elections from Anandpur Sahib.
With the announcement of two more seats, the party has so far named 81 candidates.
''SAD president Sukhbir Singh Badal announced senior party leader Prof Prem S Chandumajra from Ghanaur & S Dilraj Singh Bhundar from Sardulgarh Assembly constituency. Total announced 81,'' said party leader Daljit Singh Cheema in a tweet.
For the Assembly polls, the SAD had forged an alliance with the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) in June this year.
