Kalyan Singh Kalyan, a writer by profession and hailing from the birthplace of Guru Nanak, filed his nomination paper for the reserved seats of minorities for four provincial assemblies and the National Assembly. The Pakistan People's Party (PPP) is supporting Kalyan Singh for the seat.

Only a Sikh has filed his nomination among the five minorities, including Sikhs, Buddhist, Kailash, Bahi and Parsi. Kalyan, who was here for the release of his third book on "Sikh Culture," told ANI "After becoming MPA, my priority would be to facilitate the young generations entry into institutions of higher education and also to provide them jobs in government offices". "A few members of our community have got inducted in the Pakistan Government services, but there is lot that is yet to be done to get our new generation government employment," added Kalyan. He said Sikhs were demanding a quota in various sectors, and he would do his effort to convince the Pakistan Government to meet this demand.
