    Punjab CM Bhagwant Mann plans stay in Jalandhar ahead of key bypoll

    Date:

    In a bid to closely oversee campaigning for the upcoming Jalandhar West Assembly bypoll, Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann is planning to relocate to the Doaba region temporarily. According to sources, CM Mann will soon shift to a rented accommodation in Jalandhar Cantonment area with his family, including his wife and sister.

    During a recent meeting with party leaders and workers in Jalandhar, CM Mann outlined his strategy to intensify efforts for the bypoll slated for early next month. He said he will be spending at least 3 days every week at his new Jalandhar residence to directly coordinate with AAP cadre. Mann added that this will allow him to regularly interact with locals through initiatives like ‘Sarkar Aap Ke Dwar' and address their issues efficiently.

    In the past, the Chief Minister and his team had relied on hotel stays during visits to Jalandhar for polls like the LS bypoll last year. However, to ensure close guidance this time, Mann plans to make Jalandhar his temporary home until the 2027 state elections. He has tasked AAP workers with detailed campaign planning and conducting door-to-door outreach across targeted regions.

    The efforts come as the party received a significant defeat in Jalandhar during the recent by-election. Securing the Jalandhar West seat in the upcoming bypoll is crucial to consolidate AAP's position in Doaba. Meanwhile, the opposition Congress has also swung into action mode, holding a meeting led by MP-elect Charanjit Singh Channi to review preparations. Candidate selection for both parties remains underway and will likely be completed this week.
