SAD (Longowal) was merged with the Congress in April this year. The family has claimed that though the Gandhis had assured them tickets from Dhuri and Sangrur, the promise has not been kept.
Now, the grandson, Simar Partap Singh, seems all set to contest as Independent from Dhuri.
Gaganjit Singh Barnala, son of Surjit Singh Barnala, confirmed that a workers meeting has been called on December 25 to decide further course of action as the Congress high command has failed to review its decision on Dhuri till date.
