Fatehgarh Sahib, May 30 (UNI) Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee (PPCC) chief spokesman Bir Devinder Singh today said his party will contest elections on party symbol in 'A' class and 'B' class municipalities, and Municipal Corporation, Bathinda but will not contest on party symbol in 'C' class municipalities.

Talking to mediapersons here today, Bir Devinder Singh said that there is possibility of tie up with like-minded parties to defeat the SAD-BJP alliance government.

He alleged that SAD had resorted to high-handedness in recently held Zila Parishad, Block Samitis, Panchayat election, Amritsar bye-election and even SAD alliance partner BJP had raised serious objections over it.

He demanded that more election commissioners should be appointed to redress the public grievances as in recent held panchyat elections several complaints were unattended.

He also demanded deployment of CRPF in the coming municipality elections alleging that ''there is politicalisation of Punjab police which is playing in the hands of the state government''.

He said a high-level delegation will meet the state election commission on Monday and submit a memorandum for the conduct fair polls.
