Satya Pal Jain is nominated as the BJP candidate for Chandigarh for the forthcoming Lok Sabha elections. In what can be called the triangular contest, he will have to battle against the Congress candidate and sitting MP Pawan Kumar Bansal and INLD candidate Harmohan Dhawan.

Jain was elected from Chandigarh in 1996 when he defeated Bansal by about 25,000 votes. He beat Bansal again to be re-elected in 1998. Jain had earlier lost in 1991 by about 15,000 votes.

A practising senior advocate in the Punjab and Haryana High Court, Jain is representing senior party leaders including the Deputy Prime Minister, L.K. Advani in a few cases.

Jain was born in Kharar and was quite active in student politics as he headed the local ABVP unit for several years.
