In a significant political development, former Member of Parliament from Patiala, Dr. Dharamveer Gandhi, is poised to join the Congress party in Delhi on Monday. Gandhi, who secured victory as an Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) candidate in the 2014 Lok Sabha elections by defeating the Congress nominee Maharani Praneet Kaur, is anticipated to be declared as the Congress candidate from Patiala constituency.

The political landscape in Patiala is set for a fierce electoral battle as Praneet Kaur, who previously contested under the Congress banner and faced defeat, has now emerged as the Bharatiya Janata Party’s (BJP) contender from the same constituency. With this development, the stage is now set for a riveting showdown between Gandhi and Kaur, marking a fascinating twist in the electoral narrative of Patiala.

Gandhi’s decision to switch allegiance to the Congress and his subsequent candidacy announcement underscores the intricate dynamics of regional politics and the strategic realignments that often characterize Indian elections. As both parties gear up for the electoral fray, all eyes are now on Patiala, awaiting the unfolding of a high-stakes electoral battle that is poised to shape the political contours of the region.
