punjab congressPunjab Congress has received around 1,600 applications from ticket aspirants for the next year’s assembly elections, party sources revealed here on Tuesday. Congress had asked ticket aspirants to submit their applications to the state unit by August 15 for all 117 seats. However, the state unit may consider some left-out applicants on Wednesday as people could not submit their affidavits because of an extended holiday of three days.
Punjab Congress, which faced defeat in the last two assembly polls, had asked ticket aspirants to take a pledge that they would not contest polls on any seat against the party candidate in case they were not chosen. Punjab Congress chief Amarinder Singh had said that “winnability” of the candidate would be the “primary criteria” for the distribution of tickets. However, he assured that deserving candidates missing out on ticket will be accommodated in the government if Congress is voted to power.
