Jalandhar: In a major twist, SAD District President of Jalandhar (Urban) Gurcharan Singh Channi on Monday openly revolted against SAD candidate from Jalandhar Cantonment, Sarabjit Singh Makkar.
Channi made a written complaint to Deputy Commissioner Kamal Kishor Yadav against Sarabjit Makkar for using his photograph in his hoardings in Jalandhar Cantonment constituency and sought action against him. The SAD District president has been at loggerheads with Makkar and does not see eye to eye with him. Recently, Channi had even stated that he would work to ensure the defeat of Makkar.
Channi has already conveyed his message to party high command that Makkar was a known ‘land grabber’ and it was difficult for him to seek votes for him. Channi has stated that Makkar didn’t spare his land too.
Even SGPC member Paramjit Singh Raipur was also opposing the candidature of Makkar. Both Channi and Raipur were seeking tickets from cantonment seat.
Recently, the maiden show of strength of Makkar in the presence of Deputy Chief Minister Sukhbir Singh Badal at Sofi Pind also turned out to be a failure, as none of ‘the local leaders including Channi were present. Makkar had to manage the show with school and college students on the spot.
