Ludhiana: Three Akali Dal rebels, who had announced their candidatures for the Punjab assembly election from three different constituencies in the city, on Sunday decided to withdraw from the contest.

They made the announcement in the presence of SGPC chief Avtar Singh Makkar and several Akali and BJP leaders here.

Makkar said the problem had been sorted out after his and SAD (B) chief Sukhbir Singh Badal's intervention.

All the misunderstanding had been removed and the matter amicably resolved, he said.

The rebels told reporters they had realised that their stand would have helped the Congress which was "number one enemy of Punjab".
