    Lok Sabha polls: Former student leader Kang to try his luck from Punjab's Anandpur Sahib on AAP ticket

    Having started his political career as a student leader, AAP's Malvinder Singh Kang has now thrown his hat in the Lok Sabha election ring from the Anandpur Sahib constituency in Punjab. A former BJP leader, he quit the party over the now-repealed farm laws and is pinning his hopes on the Bhagwant Mann government’s “pro-people” initiatives to clinch the seat. Congress leader Manish Tewari is the sitting MP from Anandpur Sahib, but this time he is contesting from the Chandigarh parliamentary constituency. The Anandpur Sahib seat was bagged by Congress' Ravneet Singh Bittu in the 2009 polls and Shiromani Akali Dal's Prem Singh Chandumajra in 2014.

    Assam CM & BJP leader Himanta Biswa Sharma on Congress' manifesto | "Congress party's manifesto is prepared in a way that they win elections in Pakistan. The manifesto is more for the people of Pakistan and less for the people of India.

We have interpreted the Congress manifesto in the most right way. I will challenge them to come for a public debate to show that this manifesto is nothing but appeasement... The PM has correctly said that everybody has a right on the resources of the country. It is for the Congress party to tell why they said that the first right to the resources of the country is with a particular community. Rahul Gandhi is the best candidate for 'Pappu'"
