Amritsar: With the going getting tough for the ruling BJP-SAD coalition, chief minister Prakash Singh Badal has let it be known that winning prospects and loyalty would be the main criteriaâ€™s for selecting candidates in the upcoming assembly election.
Chief Minister Badal let reporters know yesterday at Gurusar Satlani that Shiromani Akali Dal would allot tickets within a month.
â€œThe exercise would be completed at an appropriate time after holding due consultations with senior leadership of the party,â€ he said.
Banking on the alliance with BJP, he added that both parties were firm in their alliance and would contest the elections together.
However, he did not rule a new seat arrangement for contesting the polls.
Keeping the winning prospects of candidates in mind, senior leadership of both parties would decide upon a fresh seat sharing arrangement, he said.
