AMAN ARORA NOT KEEN ON LS TICKET

Hindustan Times (Amritsar) - - Punjab & Haryana -

Will they or won’t they? The in­fight­ing-rid­den Aam

Aadmi Party

(AAP), which won Lok Sabha seats on de­but in

2014, is con­tem­plat­ing to field party MLAs to bol­ster its

■ prospects in the forth­com­ing par­lia­men­tary prospects. Though the names of three MLAs, in­clud­ing Aman Arora and Amar­jit Singh San­doa, have been do­ing the rounds, they do not seem keen. Arora’s name was con­sid­ered for Lud­hi­ana or Pa­tiala. While Pa­tiala MP Dr Dharamvira Gandhi was sus­pended from the AAP for anti-party ac­tiv­i­ties three years ago, HS Phoolka, who came sec­ond in Lud­hi­ana in 2014, quit the party last month. The can­di­da­ture of Arora, who is MLA from Su­nam and re­mains ac­tive in tak­ing up is­sues in the state assem­bly and out­side, was dis­cussed in a party meet­ing held in Delhi last week, but he didn’t show much in­ter­est. Other MLAs be­ing con­sid­ered by the party lead­er­ship, too, were not en­thused over the idea.
