Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Arun jailtey filed his nomination from his constituency Amritsar on Monday.

The BJP in its Central Election Committee meeting which was finalizing the list of candidates for the upcoming elections apparently had reportedly told Sidhu that he (Sidhu) would not be fielded again from the high-profile constituency of Punjab and was given a choice of three other seats - Delhi, Chandigarh or Kurukshetra.
