BJP candidates go all out to woo voters
New Delhi: The Bharatiya Janata party's campaign for Lok Sabha in Delhi at this point seems to be unfazed by nothing, including the searing heat. All seven party candidates had their schedules full, reaching out to voters in every corner of their constituencies.
While NE Delhi candidate Manoj Tiwari addressed several meeting in Timarpur and Burari, Gautam Gambhir (E Delhi), and Harsh Vardhan (Chandni Chowk) were busy with voter meets and 'padyatras' in their respective constituencies.
However, the commonality in all their campaign efforts is seen in how two-minded it is. On the one hand, the candidates are using their time with voters to praise policies brought under Narendra Modi's leadership. On the other, they are flaying the opposition in Delhi for not allowing those policies to be fully implemented.
Tiwari said that Arvind Kejriwal is deliberately stopping schemes like the Ayushmaan Bharat Yojana that provides financial support for the poor. The sitting MP went on to say that all Modi wants do is "to make lives of the poor easy and end their suffering".
Meanwhile, East Delhi's Gambhir, while out in his constituency echoed the party line, saying the AAP is only raising statehood as its poll plank to hide its failures and lack of vision in the last four years.
Creating waves closer to the heart of Delhi, Vardhan held several padyatras and promised to bring an end to parking woes of people in a constituency that is infamous for congestion.
