On a day when Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh met party legislators to control any rebellion in the party ranks, the ruling party was left embarrassed on Tuesday when the wife of a Congress Rajya Sabha member joined the opposition Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) and was named a candidate in the Lok Sabha elections.
Kaur was declared the AAP candidate for the Fatehgarh Sahib (reserved) Lok Sabha seat by AAP following her joining. The AAP withdrew the name of its already announced candidate for the seat, Balwinder Singh, in favour of Kaur.
Kaur had lost the election in the 2007 Assembly polls.
