Amritsar: Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) on Sunday named Pardeep Singh Walia as its candidate for the Amritsar Lok Sabha seat at a rally here.

Addressing the rally, BSP National General Secretary Narinder Kashyap alleged that Congress was an anti-poor party and said nobody should have any expectations from the ruling UPA government at the Centre, which it headed.

Turning to the SAD-BJP combine in power in Punjab, Kashyap alleged that the alliance had done nothing to secure the well- being of the Dalit community in the state.

Walia formerly used to be a member of the Shiromani Akali Dal.
