Ferozepur:After joining the Congress, former CPS and senior SAD leader Gurtej Singh Ghuriana called a meeting of his supporters in Balluana, which turned to be a strength show in which hundreds of his supporters assembled in the meeting.
Though it was a supporter meeting, but the aim of Ghuriana was not merely a meeting but to display his show of strength to the Congress as well as the SAD that he had sufficient strength to change the scenario of the election.
In his address to the supporters, Gurtej Singh said that he had called this meeting to tell that he had joined the Congress so that all the supporters would prepare to support the candidate whosoever the Congress decided to field in the constituency, but he had also said that if the Congress gave him the ticket from this constituency he would win the seat with the help of the party cadre as well as with the support of his old supporters.
On the other side, sources said that there are already about two dozen aspirants of the Congress ticket and if the party give the ticket to Gurtej Singh, there would be a storm-like situation in the Congress because there could be a revolt in the party which can damage the image of the party.
But on other side, if Ghuriana succeeded in getting the ticket there, then it would be a very tough and interesting contest between Congress, SAD and AAP, because Gurtej Singh Ghuriana has a strong base in the area.
