Bawana by-poll: AAP, Cong, BJP go all out to woo voters
NEW DELHI: The Bawana in north west Delhi on Sunday was star studded with campaigners like Arvind Kejriwal, Ghulam Nabi Azad, Manoj Tiwari and so on. While the AAP's full cabinet was present across the area at different times, the BJP and Congess brought the central leaders to make the reach of the campaign high. This Sunday was the last weekend before the by-election.
The Deputy Chief Minister of Delhi Manish Sisodia started his campaign early morning and did door to door campaigns. The huge gathering in the main road burst in applause when CM Arvind Kejriwal asked the people that this battle is against corruption. "The BJP candidate is lying about me, he is saying that I have not allowed him to work."
He reminded him by saying that now because the earlier MLA of the area Ved Prakash has joined BJP, he will never get a chance to work.
Delhi BJP leaders and office bearers joined a large force of over 1795 Booth Panch Parmeshwars of 379 polling booths and another over 2,000 local workers of Nangal Thakran, Bawana, Pooth Khurd, Rohini C, Rohini D and Begumpur wards of Bawana constituency in a 'padyatra' campaigning. During the campaign, Manoj Tiwari said, "People of Bawana reposed high faith in us by electing BJP councilors in four out of six wards in the assembly area and with the kind of response I have been getting in the campaign of last few days here, the victory of BJP candidate seems a foregone conclusion."
Minister Birendra Singh said people of Bawana look forward to benefiting from the schemes and programmes of Prime Minister Narendra Modi's government, especially those for farmers and Dalits.
"BJP-ruled central government, which also governs the three Municipal Corporations and the AAP government in Delhi have not done anything for those living in the JJ clusters and for the development of the resettlement colonies."
