It is learned that the decision has been taken by Delhi High Command Arvind Kejriwal.
Why Turbanator Harbhajan Singh is AAP’s choice as Rajya Sabha Candidate?
Harbhajan Singh has a great fan following in the world. Being a cricket star from Punjab, he has made the nation proud. Moreover, he belongs to the Sikh community, which is a plus point for Aam Aadmi Party.
AAP needs good candidates in their party to survive in Punjab. It was also emphasized that a sports university would be set up in Jalandhar. Now Harbhajan Singh’s name is likely to be selected as Rajya Sabha candidate, in such a situation it is being said that he is also given the command of the Sports University.
Apart from this, Harbhajan Singh has close contact with Punjab CM Bhagwant Mann.
