Akali Dal may ask Cheema to contest from Ludhiana


Akali Dal may ask Cheema to contest from Ludhiana

Tribune News Service

Ropar, April 9

Senior SAD leader and former Cabinet minister Daljit Singh Cheema is being seen as a probable candidate for the party from Ludhiana parliamentary constituency after several party leaders from the constituency met him recently to convince him to contest from there.

Cheema, former MLA from Ropar, is party in charge of Ludhiana district.

Earlier, there were rumours that the party was interested in fielding its senior leader Bikram Singh Majithia from Ludhiana. This possibility, however, was ruled out when party president Sukhbir Singh Badal declared that Majithia would not contest from any parliamentary seat few days ago.

Cheema, who lost his Assembly seat last year to AAP MLA Amarjit Singh Sandoa, is known for his proximity to Badals.

Cheema confirmed that party leaders from Ludhiana wanted him to contest from Ludhiana. Claiming that he was not in the race for the ticket, he said there were many other suitable candidates from Ludhiana unit of SAD. He, however, said he would abide by the party’s directions if asked to do so.
