Punjab: Congressmen rebel against Phagwara MLA

Phagwara, Jan 20 (UNI) Congress workers, led by senior party leader Harjit Singh Parmar and district acting president Daljeet Singh Raju, rebelled against party candidate and sitting MLA Balwinder Singh Dhaliwal, here on Thursday.
In a meeting held at a local hotel here, hundreds of Congress workers said that they are demoralised as the party has once again allotted the ticket to sitting MLA Dhaliwal ignoring the sentiments of workers.
They said that Dhaliwal who became MLA in the bye-election has given nothing to Phagwara except promoting corruption and nepotism. They said that inefficient MLA had ignored the party workers in his tenure and they would not let him win the election.
