Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) has named its Punjab legal cell head Himmat Singh Shergill as the candidate against Shiromani Akali Dal firebrand and revenue minister Bikram Singh Majitha from his segment Majitha in Amritsar district. Shergill was earlier announced as candidate from SAS Nagar (or Mohali).
AAP supremo and Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal made the announcement at a party rally at Majitha on Wednesday.
The Badals and the Congress have ruined the state during the last 15 years with mutual understanding, said Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal, while addressing a rally here today.
Kejriwal said he would recover every penny from both soon after forming the government in the state.
He said the Badal government had failed to identify and punish the accused involved in the sacrilege of Guru Granth Sahib and those responsible for the deaths of innocent protesters in Bargari. He claimed that AAP would punish the culprits.
Kejriwal said this border district had been ignored by the successive governments.
