In Punjab, Congress is contesting under the leadership of Chief Minister Charanjit Singh Channy and State President Navjyot Singh Sidhu. Congress today announced the names of 86 candidates. It has given a chance to new faces by cutting the address of many existing MLAs. It is seen that internal resentment is erupting from it and the present MLA from Moga, Dr. Harjyot Kamal has dealt a major blow to Congress. He has left the party and joined the BJP out of resentment over being ousted by Congress.
There were already indications that Congress would give a new face to the Moga constituency. Actor Sonu Sood's sister Malvika Sood was rumored to be contested here. She had recently joined the Congress party. Sidhu and Channi had visited Sonu Sood in Moga. After that, Malvika's entry into the Congress was sealed there and it was almost certain that Malvika would get a ticket from Moga. Today, Malvika was actually included in the first list of Congress. Within hours, local MLA Harjyot slammed the Congress and joined the BJP. BJP's Punjab election in-charge Gajendrasinh Shekhawat welcomed Harjyot to the party. Harjyot Kamal's entry into the BJP has made him happier. This will increase the BJP's base in the Moga constituency. The fact that the lotus is in his name is a plus, said Shekhawat.
