Punjab Assembly Elections 2022: Just days ahead of crucial assembly polls in the border state of Punjab, the newly carved Punjab Lok Congress released its list of star campaigners on Thursday.
The list features the names of party chief Captain Amarinder Singh and Lt General TS Shergill among others.
According to the list, the president of the Punjab Lok Congress party has approved the appointment of 11 members as star campaigners for elections to the Punjab Vidhan Sabha 2022.
The list includes the names of Amrik Singh Aliwal, Biba Jai Inder Kaur, Raninder Singh, Brig IS Gakhal, Er SMS Sandhu, Rjana Rajinder Singh Bir Kalan, Sandeep Singh Bal, Baghel Singh Bahia and Rani Ramneek Kaur.
Captain Amarinder Singh led Punjab Lok Congress will contest the upcoming Punjab Assembly elections in alliance with Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and Sukhdev Dhindsa led Shiromani Akali Dal (Sanyukt).
Notably, Punjab Lok Congress president and former chief minister Amarinder Singh on Tuesday said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Union Home Minister Amit Shah will be coming to Punjab soon to campaign for the assembly elections.
This announcement gains significance in the backdrop of PM Modi's visit to Punjab last month where his Ferozepur event was called off citing a major security lapse.
