Chandigarh: Senior BJP leader Arun Jaitley Monday filed his nomination papers for the Amritsar Lok Sabha seat.


Jaitley, a senior lawyer and leader of opposition in the Rajya Sabha, will face former Punjab chief minister Amarinder Singh in the high-profile contest for the seat.

Sitting Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MP from Amritsar, cricketer-turned-politician Navjot Singh Sidhu, was absent when Jaitley's filed his papers.

Sidhu was dumped by the BJP despite winning the Amritsar seat in 2004, 2007 (by-election) and 2009. He has not been seen in Amritsar ever since Jaitley, his political guru, was announced as the BJP candidate from Amritsar.
