Chhotepur’s APP likely to support Cong candidate

Chandigarh, Oct 3: Sucha Singh Chhotepur’s Aapna Punjab Party (APP) is likely to support Congress candidate Sunil Jakhar. Sources said Chhotepur convened a meeting with senior party leaders last week. “Various options were discussed, but eventually we agreed to back Jakhar,” said a senior party leader who attended the meeting, wishing not to be named.

“Whether we will support him openly or ask our supporters to silently vote for Jakhar will be taken at a meeting later this week,” he said. When contacted, Chhotepur said the final decision would be taken in a couple of days. Chhotepur was elected MLA twice from Gurdaspur district, once as an Akali candidate and the other time as an Independent.
He contested on the AAP ticket from the Gurdaspur Lok Sabha constituency in 2014 and bagged 1.73 lakh votes to finish a creditable third. However, he received only 1,740 votes as the APP nominee from the Gurdaspur seat in this year’s Assembly elections.
