The party has named Kher as the candidate from Chandigarh, ignoring three frontrunners including former MP Satya Pal Jain, Chandigarh BJP President Sanjay Tandon and former Union Minister Harmohan Dhawan.
When Kher’s candidature was announced by the party high command on Saturday, there was a revolt in the Chandigarh unit of BJP, leading to a few resignations by some office bearers of the city unit.
From the Chandigarh seat, where polling will be held on April 10, former Railway Minister Pawan Kumar Bansal is seeking re-election as Congress nominee.
Bansal had earlier downplayed the presence of prominent women – former Miss India Gul Panag (AAP) and actor Kirron Kher (BJP) – in the fray, saying paratroopers cannot do some overnight magic.
