Son to fight as independent

His son Yadvindra Singh Kang will contest the polls from Kharar as an independent candidate and will file nomination papers on Tuesday, the former minister said.

Kang levelled allegations against the CM of buying land for his personal use and then charging it to the Kharar municipal council’s accounts, thus costing the civic body crores of rupees. “I have been humiliated. Now, I will go to every village in Morinda, Chamkaur Sahib and then in Bhadaur. We will defeat him,” he said.
