NO ROLE IN SIDHU’S WIFE’S TICKET DENIAL FROM CHANDIGARH: CAPT

Friday, 17 May 2019 | PNS | Patiala

Denying any role in the denial of ticket to Navjot Singh Sidhu’s wife from Chandigarh, Punjab Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh on Thursday said she had been offered ticket from Amritsar and Bathinda, but she refused the same.

Ticket allocation was done by the Congress high command in Delhi, and they had chosen not to accept Navjot Kaur’s application for ticket to contest from Chandigarh, he said, adding that Chandigarh was not under Punjab and he had no role in selection of candidate from the city.

However, had he been asked, he would frankly told the high command that Pawan Bansal, the chosen candidate of the party, was a better choice, said Capt Amarinder here.
