Gurdaspur LS by-poll today

10 Oct 2017

Polling for the high-stakes Gurdaspur Lok Sabha by-poll will be held on Wednesday. The seat, which fell vacant following the demise of actor-turned-politician Vinod Khanna of the BJP in April, is expected to witness a three-horse race between the Congress, the BJP and the AAP. While the Congress has fielded its Punjab unit chief Sunil Jakhar, the BJP has put up businessman Swaran Salaria. The AAP has placed a bet on Major General (retd) Suresh Khajuria.
