For the ruling Aam Aadmi Party, this election is an important one which is why the AAP leadership has directed four cabinet ministers and one Rajya Sabha member to contest the elections. It is being informed that the AAP leadership may formally announce the candidates in the next three-four days, as the party wants to maintain the tradition of announcing the candidates first.

 

According to the information, the party has decided to field the young cabinet minister Gurmeet Singh Meet Hayer from the Sangrur Lok Sabha constituency, the home of the Chief Minister. The party high command has given the green signal to Meet Hayer to stand in the election field. Earlier, the party had decided to field film and comedian artist Karamjit Anmol on this seat, but since Sangrur is a general constituency, the party has decided to make Karamjit Anmol a candidate from Sri Fatehgarh Sahib.

 

Similarly, AAP has decided to make Health Minister Balbir Singh a candidate from Patiala constituency. Moreover the party has decided to gamble on Health minister Dr Balbir Singh, an MLA from Patiala (rural), who has been shortlisted to contest the LS polls by the party, but his name is yet to be finalised.

 

Aam Aadmi Party is fielding Rajya Sabha member Sanjeev Arora from Ludhiana constituency. From Jalandhar, the ticket will be given again to Sushil Rinku. While the name of Lal Chand Kataruchak is being considered from Hoshiarpur as the party is looking for a prominent Dalit face. This is particularly prominent as sources inform that congress will be fielding ex-CM Charanjit Singh Channi from Jalandhar, who is also a Dalit.

 

Sources say that the ruling party Aam Aadmi Party is in the mood to include leaders who have good standing among the people of other parties in the coming days.
