The Congress has finally fielded MLA Pawan Kajal from the Kangra Lok Sabha constituency. He is pitted against Kishan Kapoor of the Bharatiya Janta Party.
Earlier in the day, Pawan through a Facebook post announced his candidature as the party’s LS candidate from Kangra.
The party has released another list of 20 candidates, including nominees for Punjab and Chandigarh.
While BJP candidate and Minister for Food and Civil Supplies, Kishan Kapoor, started his campaign a week ago, Congress candidate Pawan Kajal was holidaying in Sri Lanka. Sources said Pawan would be back after a couple of days after which the party would organise a motorcycle rally in Kangra to start his campaign.
Earlier, Kajal and Sudhir Sharma, both Virbhadra loyalits were two candidates Congress had zeroed in on but ultimately Pawan Kajal made it.
Kajal is from the OBC community and 28 per cent of the Kangra constituency has OBC voters.
