Chandigarh: Aam Aadmi Party on Saturday fielded its Punjab convener and actor Gurpreet Singh Ghuggi from Batala constituency, as it announced the seventh list with four candidates for the upcoming state Assembly polls.
A native of Khokhar Faujian village in Batala, Ghuggi joined AAP in February and was appointed the party’s Punjab convener replacing Sucha Singh Chhotepur who was removed from the post after a video clip surfaced showing him allegedly taking bribe in exchange for poll tickets.
By nominating Ghuggi from Batala seat, the party has put the speculations to rest about fielding him against state minister Bikram Singh Majithia from Majitha Assembly constituency. AAP had announced a few days back to field a “prominent face” against Majithia.
Besides him, AAP also announced to nominate 55-y ar-old Sukhwant Singh Padda from Kapurthala seat while Atul Nagpal has been given ticket from Abohar seat. Sukhwinder Singh Mann has been fielded from Sardulgarh, the party said in a release here.
