All India Mahila Congress chief Shobha Oza said the party would field one woman candidate per district in the assembly elections.

“The decision has been taken by the high command. Not only Punjab, but in other poll-bound-states too, the party has decided to give at least one ticket to women leaders in each district,” said Oza. She was interacting with the media at state Congress Spokesperson Navjot Dahiya’s house on Tuesday.

After meeting women workers in Jalandhar rural and urban districts, the Mahila Congress chief raised concern over the deteriorating law and order in the state.

To a question, Oza said: “The AAP is using public money collected from Delhi for advertisements in Punjab. People in the national capital are fed up with the AAP government and I am sure voters in Punjab will reject it.”
