Chandigarh: As per media the reports the Punjab unit of Aam Adami Party AAP is mulling to field former journalist and Delhi legislator Jarnail Singh, against Punjab Chief Minister Parkash Badal in the upcoming state Assembly polls. The announcement is likely to be made by Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal in a couple of days at a rally at Lambi, a seat represented by Badal.
“The rally should take place in a couple of days. Currently, the Shiromani Akali Dal (Badal) are creating hurdles to ensure that the rally does not take place,” a senior party leader stated while talking to the Indian Express (IE).
The 43-year-old former scribe was sacked from the organisation for allegedly hurling a shoe at the then Home Minister P Chidambaram over the Sikh Genocide issue. Singh, who is AAP legislator from Rajouri Garden, had also unsuccessfully contested 2014 Lok Sabha polls from West Delhi on the party ticket.
When contacted by the media Jarnail Singh said he was ready to take “any challenge” that the party asks him to take up.
