Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee (PPCC) president Capt Amarinder Singh on Saturday formally announced the expulsion of 12 rebels from the party after they refused to withdraw their candidatures.

They include Ashok Sharma from Pathankot, Sucha Singh Chhotepur and Baljit Singh Bhatti from Baba Bakala, Sukhjinder Singh Lali Majithia from Majitha, Ram Kishen Kataria from Balachaur, Hari Pal from Chamkaur Sahib, Bhalinder Singh in Ludhaina Rural, Jagmohan Sharma in Ludhiana Urban, former minister Harbans Lal in Fatehgarh Sahib and former MLAs Ravinder Babbal, Upender Sharma (Kotkapura) and Gurbir Singh Sandhu (Jalalabad).

The PPCC president also warned those working against the party candidates in different constituencies, asking them to join the party’s campaigning. He said the activities of all the leaders were being closely watched by the observers and did not rule out further action if these leaders did not join the campaigning of the party candidates.
