The Punjab Polls are only 4 months away and political parties have started to contact religious leaders with massive followings. The Punjab CM has appointed Parminder Singh Sekhon, the brother in law of head Dera Radha Soami Gurinder Singh Dhillon.
According to the Tribune News Service, the move was orchestrated by Bikram Singh Majithia who was in communication with the Dera.
The Dera has a significant following in Punjab which has traditionally leaned towards the Congress party. However, the Dera’s vote could be crucial for the SAD for key races.
