Tribune News Service

Mohali, November 7

Even as political parties are yet to release the list of their candidates for the forthcoming elections to the Municipal Corporation (MC), former councillors have started campaigning in the city.

Members of the Congress and the Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) have started campaigning in their respective wards. The delimitation of wards has been done by the Municipal Corporation and forwarded to the Local Bodies Department for issuing a final notification.

Sitting councillor from Ward No. 23 and senior Akali leader SS Dhanoa said, "Sitting councilors will be contesting elections on the party ticket." Screening of candidates from the city was going on and the same would be finalised in 10 days, he added. They were sure that people would vote for their party candidates in the MC elections likely to be held in January, he said.

Meanwhile, sitting Congress councillors and interested candidates have also started their election campaign. Confirming the same, senior Congress leader Kuljit Singh Bedi said a list of candidates had already been prepared and was being finalised by Health and Family Welfare Minister Balbir Singh Sidhu.

Bedi said the party would be fielding candidates with clean image under Sidhu's supervision. He claimed that the party would sweep the elections this time.
