Harsimrat's daughter among Punjab's first-time voters


Bathinda, May 19 (IANS): Union Minister Harsimrat Kaur Badal's daughter Gurlin Kaur was among around 400,000 first-time voters in Punjab on Sunday. She was seen with a certificate of appreciation outside a polling station in her ancestral village Badal, near here.

Parkash Singh Badal's daughter-in-law Harsimrat Kaur is locked in a multi-cornered contest in Bathinda, the Akali Dal stronghold.

Two-term MP from the seat, she is taking on the Punjab Democratic Alliance's Sukhpal Singh Khaira, Aam Aadmi Party's Baljinder Kaur and Congress candidate Amrinder Singh Warring.

In 2014, Harsimrat Kaur scraped through by 19,500 votes against her estranged cousin Manpreet Badal, now a Cabinet Minister in the Captain Amarinder Singh-led Congress government.

Punjab's 13 Lok Sabha seats went to polls in the seventh and final phase of the general elections on Sunday.
