Among the first-timers, Davinder Gubaya, son of sitting Akali MP Sher Singh Gubaya, has been nominated from Fazilka, in the third list, which consists of two women candidates, taking the total number of women to 10.
Expressing satisfaction at the candidate selection, Punjab Congress president Captain Amarinder Singh said the remaining 17 seats would also be declared soon. He claimed that the party was well prepared for the electoral battle and expressed the confidence of making a clean sweep of the polls scheduled for February 4.
