Rajnath Singh campaigns for Parvesh Verma in West Delhi
New Delhi: Union Minister Rajnath Singh on Monday addressed a public meeting in Sagarpur, to show support and campaign for BJP's West Delhi candidate and incumbent MP Parvesh Verma. Speaking to supporters of the saffron party, Singh said that he does not need to introduce Verma to the people of his constituency. The Home Minister said that as part of his duties he constantly observes works done by MP's in Delhi and that Verma's work has always been nothing short of commendable. "I can say that your candidate has achieved excellent results here in his five-year tenure," he said.
Moreover, Singh praised Verma for being vocal in parliament as opposed to so many other parliamentarians. "I can't think of one debate where he did not participate," he said. Verma was part of 25 debates, raised 207 questions, and part of seven private members' bills in the last five years.
Party heavyweight Singh, who is himself contesting from Lucknow, which went to polls on Monday, said that Verma is fighting this election with the singular thought of working towards realising Narendra Modi's vision for India. And while Singh went about seeking votes for former Delhi CM Sahib Singh Verma's son, other BJP candidates took to roadshows, public meetings, and appointments to intensify their campaign efforts.
In this regard, North East Delhi candidate Manoj Tiwari got support from controversial Haryanvi singer-dancer Sapna Chaudhary, who urged people to vote BJP back into power this year at public meetings in the constituency. Chaudhary attacked Arvind Kejriwal's Aam Aadmi Party, saying that the AAP chief is indulging in "low-grade politics" by insulting artists.
Tiwari continued with his train of thought on opposition bashing, accusing the Congress of corruption and the AAP of trying to hide its failures.
