Kahlon, along with his supporters, returned to the party fold in the presence of SAD president Sukhbir Singh Badal at a ceremony at the community centre in Phase 7.

Party’s Anandpur Sahib candidate Prem Singh Chandumajra said despite leaving the party, Kahlon was remained close to the party leaders.

Badal said Mohali held prime importance in the state and thus Chandumajra was the best candidate for its development. “If given a chance, development of Mohali, including its industry and infrastructure, will be our top priority. We promise to work for its development,” said Badal, claiming the previous SAD government had spearheaded development in Mohali and in the state.
