A Cobgress leader said the party is asking questions like if Pargat is to be fielded from his current seat Jalandhar Cantt, what will happen to Jagbir Brar, Congress candidate who lost this seat to him earlier in 2012? Similarly Sarwan Singh Phillaur is seeking a ticket from Phillaur, which Congress MP Santokh Singh’s son Vikramjit is also seeking.
