Chandigarh/Hoshiarpur, May 17

BJP’s Som Parkash and Congress’ Dr Raj Kumar Chabbewal continued to be the top contenders for the Hoshiarpur constituency.

While AAP’s Dr Ravjot Singh made a strong presence felt mainly through his direct contact. He, however, is likely to find it difficult to leave a 

big impact like party’s 2014 candidate Yamini Gomar, who got 2.13 lakh votes. 

Dr Chabbewal talked about getting industrial hub, medical college and health services, while Som Parkash underlined the works of PM Narender Modi as the reason why people should vote for him. He faced questions over the non-fulfilment of promises made by the Congress government in the state. Som Parkash, on the other hand, faced troubles because of the lack of support from a section of his party workers over the denial of ticket to Minister of State for Social Justice and Empowerment Vijay Sampla.

Meanwhile, PDA (BSP) candidate Khushi Ram, a former IAS, faced the uphill task of reviving the party in the area.
