A lacklustre affair, voter not enthused


A lacklustre affair, voter not enthused

Jalandhar, May 17

It turned out to be a lacklustre campaign for the candidates of all main political parties in the Jalandhar Lok Sabha constituency.

Since there was no celebrity or any senior political bigwig campaigning here, the candidates had to rope in only MLAs and local party cadres to carry out their shows. Voters are also not showing any enthusiasm. While it is usual for senior BJP leaders, including Union Ministers Arun Jaitley, JP Nadda, Smriti Irani, Thawar Chand Gehlot and Piyush Goyal, to address political events in Jalandhar, but this time no one turned up here.

Other than Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh, who came here twice, no other senior Congress minister from the state campaigned here for sitting MP and candidate Chaudhary Santokh Singh. Former CM Parkash Singh Badal and SAD chief Sukhbir Badal attended a rally each for SAD candidate Charanjit Singh Atwal.

Even AAP national convener Arvind Kejriwal did not hold any programme here. Manish Sisodia, however, held a roadshow for Justice Zora Singh (retd). BSP chief Mayawati campaigned for party candidate and former scribe Balwinder Kumar at Nawanshahr.
