Capt. Amarinder: Congress Candidates list for Punjab polls not announced yet, Fake Punjab Congress candidates list, Punjab election congress candidate list 2016, Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee,Punjab polls 2017 candidate list
Punjab Congress chief Amarinder Singh on Sunday denied that the party has announced a list of candidates for the state elections next year reports of which are circulating in the social media, saying it is the handiwork of some mischievous elements to create confusion.
"Unlike other parties, Congress has a proper, transparent and well-established system and procedure for finalising the candidates," he said, adding the list of applicants is still with the Pradesh Congress Committee and is being scrutinised.
He disclosed that the list of applicants was still with the PCC and it was being scrutinised for various eligibility criteria prescribed for the candidates. "The list will be submitted to the high command within a week, where it will be referred to the screening committee and the final decision will be taken by the Central Election Committee (CEC) headed by the Congress president," he said.
The PCC president disclosed that the circulation of the purported list was the handiwork of some mischievous elements who did not seem even familiar with Punjabi pronunciation of names, the way they had been mentioned in the said list.
Captain Amarinder said, "The party will update everyone about the process and also the date when the list will be submitted to the high command by the PCC."
