BJP justifies fielding new faces for Punjab polls



Amritsar: BJP vice president Shanta Kumar on Sunday said the party's decision of fielding new faces for the Punjab assembly polls will prove to be a success.

"Winnability factor was kept in mind while fielding them," Kumar, party's in-charge for Punjab affairs, told reporters here.

He said the national-level leadership of the party would aggressively campaign in Punjab to ensure victory of ruling SAD-BJP combine.

BJP is contesting 23 seats and its ally SAD 94. Asked about rebellion faced by main Opposition Congress on some seats, he said it would give enormous benefit to BJP and SAD.
