At last, the Indian National Congress has cleared the final list of nominees from the three pending seats of Amritsar South, Mansa and Ludhiana East.
Inderbir Singh Bolaria has been chosen to contest from Amritsar South while the party candidate from Mansa is Dr. Manju Bansal. The ticket for Ludhiana East has been allotted to Sanjay Talwar.
Bolaria, the sitting MLA from Amritsar South, had quit the Shiromani Akali Dal to join the Congress in October last year. Dr. Manju Bansal is the wife of former Congress MLA Mangat Rai Bansal, while Sanjay Talwar is a sitting Congress councillor from Ludhian.
With these three names, the party has announced its candidates from all the 117 constituencies for the Punjab Assembly elections, scheduled for February 4.
