    Jalandhar West Assembly bypoll: Litmus test for Punjab CM as voting gets under way

    Date:

    Chandigarh, Jul 10: Polling for Jalandhar West Assembly constituency began on Wednesday with 15 candidates in the fray for a multi-cornered contest.

    A total of 1.72 lakh people will cast votes in the by-election till 6 pm.

    The seat fell vacant as Sheetal Angural resigned as an AAP legislator. He's again in the fray, now as a BJP nominee.

    In a battle between the AAP, the BJP and the Congress, Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann's prestige is at stake.

    The ballots will be counted on July 13.

    The Jalandhar West (reserved) Assembly constituency is a hub of Dalits in the Doaba region.

    While the ruling AAP has fielded BJP rebel Mohinder Bhagat as its candidate, the BJP pitted former AAP MLA Angural as its nominee.

    The Congress's nominee is Surinder Kaur, the former senior deputy mayor and five-time councillor of Jalandhar.

    The Shiromani Akali Dal has extended support to Bahujan Samaj Party nominee Binder Kumar.
