After a declaration of revolt at Adampur constituency against the announced SAD candidate,Pawan Teenu,now ticket contenders at Jalandhar Cantt constituency have also started putting pressure on the SAD high command to announce the ticket in their favour. SAD has yet to announce a candidate for Jalandhar Cantt,Phillaur and Kartarpur constituencies in Jalandhar district.
Around 300 people from 62 villages,which included around 25 sarpanches,Block Samiti members,and Zial Parishad members attended a meeting called by SGPC member Paramjit Singh Raipur at his place in Raipur on Saturday.
Among SAD leaders who were present in the meeting were district SAD (urban) president Gurcharan Singh Channi,SGPC member Paramjit Singh Raipur,women cell president Surinder Kaur Johal and SAD (SC wing) district president and member Zila Parishad Manjit Singh.
Channi and Raipur are the main contenders for Jalandhar cantt ticket,from where Jagbir Brar had contested in 2007 and later formed PPP with Manpreet Badal and then defected to the Congress.
However nothing was said against the SAD or its high command but pressure was indirectly built in favour of Channi and Raipur.
Earlier the contenders in Jalandhar Cantt were stopped from conducting such meetings by the party high command .
