Randhawa said that while working in Samana assembly Punjab Congress Chief, Capt Amarinder Singh and Preneet Kaur got ticket for their son Raninder Singh, and I was asked to work for him.

But now Lal Singh has used his influence to get ticket for his son who has just started campaigning in Samana segment whereas I am working here from over a decade.

She accused that Congress is under the influence of Nepotism and Imperialistic forces and there is no room left for sincere leaders.

She said that her supporters have asked her to oppose the party’s candidate and contest election as independent.
