In a big jolt to Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) and a major upset just before Jalandhar West bye-elections polling, SAD candidate Surjit Kaur has suddenly joined the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP). She reportedly took this decision after a meeting with Punjab Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann. The CM welcomed Surjit Kaur to the party at his house in Jalandhar.

After getting Surjit Kaur to join, CM Mann said that “I will give good responsibility to Behenji in the government. At whatever level, we will give place to Surjit Kaur in the government.”

The interesting thing to note is that Surjit Kaur has already filed her nomination as a candidate of Shiromani Akali Dal headed by Sukhbir Badal. Meanwhile, AAP has fielded Mohinder Bhagat, son of former BJP minister Chunni Lal Bhagat, for assembly seat.

BJP will be fielding Sheetal Angural, who had left AAP, after his resignation resulted in the bye-elections taking place. The polls will be held on July 10.
