With an eye on the Punjab state assembly elections due in early 2022, the Punjab BJP unit has appointed Colonel Jaibans Singh as the party’s State Media Advisor. Colonel Singh has vast experience in the information and media domain and he writes extensively on issues related to J&K and Punjab. He is also the Chief Editor of thepunjabpulse.com, a digital information platform that covers Punjab.
BJP Punjab has also inducted other office bearers, which include Harinder Singh Kahlon (Jalandhar) as State Spokesperson (TV); Kuldeep Singh Kahlon (Amritsar) as panelist for the debates; Dr. Jaswinder Singh Dhillon (Amritsar) as state co-convener of intellectual cell; Nirmaljit Singh (Mohali), Jagmohan Singh Saini (Patiala), Kavita Sarowal (Patiala), Jeevan Mahajan as special invitees; Sukhpal Brar (Faridkot) and Baljinder Singh Dakoha (Batala) as co-convenors of Panchayati Raj Cell.
By appointing this new set of office bearers the BJP Punjab has vested high level responsibility on all the prominent Sikh faces of Punjab who were taken into the party fold on 16 June 2021. This move indicates the seriousness with which the party is pursuing its policy to create a Pan-Punjab signature post its break up with Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) earlier.
