Tarn Taran: Expressing his satisfaction over poll preparations, state Bharatiya Janata Party president Ashwini Sharma said only winnable candidates would be fielded in Punjab Assembly elections. The list of candidates would be released in the first week of January.

Sharma held meeting with district BJP presidents and other office bearers who were assigned duties for conducting a successful Janvishwas rally on December 24 in Jalandhar.

The Punjab BJP chief said, “The party candidates may be replaced with that of Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) on some seats to ensure the victory of alliance.”

The massive crowds during the Janvishwas rally will attest the good governance of the SAD-BJP government, added the saffron party leader.

Several leaders including Jai Jit Singh Prince, Gurpreet Singh Goldi and Jaswant Singh Padda were present in the meeting.
