Raja Warring on Badals

Gidderbaha MLA Amrinder Singh Raja Warring is the Congress choice to challenge Akalis in Bathinda, a predominantly rural seat of the Malwa region from where Union minister Harsimrat Kaur Badal is the sitting MP.
The party needed an aggressive leader to fight the Badals on their turf after both finance minister Manpreet Singh Badal and former chief parliamentary secretary Navjot Kaur Sidhu refused to contest and Warring fitted the bill.
The young leader, who built his political career by taking on the Badals, has shown the big fight temperament in the past. He got his first break when he defeated Manpreet, who was then the People’s Party of Punjab (PPP) chief, to win the prestigious assembly seat in the 2012 state polls.

On getting elected, the firebrand leader held a series of protests against the Badal family, barging into then chief minister Parkash Singh Badal’s sangat darshan programme in his constituency at one stage and police force had to be deployed to keep him at bay. He knows the art of staying in the limelight, but gets carried away often and lands into controversies for shooting off his mouth.
