In Chandigarh, Hanspal was inducted into the AAP by the party’s state unit president and main ministerial face Bhagwant Mann and Punjab affairs co-incharge Raghav Chadha. Hanspal was a member of the Congress state election committee. Hanspal attempted to obtain a seat for his grandson Sunder Singh Hanspal from the Sahnewal assembly segment but was denied.

Vikram Bajwa, the son-in-law of former chief minister Rajinder Kaur Bhattal, has been nominated by the Congress for the seat. Hanspal was a two-term member of Parliament who led the Punjab Congress from 2002 to 2005.

“Such seasoned leaders’ support demonstrates that a wind of political change is blowing in the state,” Mann said as he welcomed him into the AAP.
