New Delhi: Punjab’s Revenue Minister Bikram Majithia is campaigning for Badal Dal-BJP candidate Manjinder Singh Sirsa for Delhi Assembly Elections, but the dark shadow of his alleged patronage to drugs abuse and trade in Punjab is following him even in Delhi.
Manjinder Singh Sirsa is candidate of Badal-BJP combine from Rajaouri Garden and Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) has fielded Journalist Jarnail Singh. Rajaouri Garden has around 48,000 Sikh voters. It has another nearly 60,000 strong Punjabi electorate. Total electorate of the constituency counts for 1.64 lakh.
Punjab Revenue Minister Bikram Majithia is leading the campaign. He is going from door to door, besides addressing rallies. His sister and Union Minister for Food Processing Harsimrat Kaur Badal has also campaigned for Sirsa.
Where as the Badal-BJP has made development projects initiated by Manjinder Sirsa as the plank for seeking votes, the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) is questioning Manjinder Sirsa and his campaign leader Bikram Majithia on drugs issues in Punjab. The AAP brings out and circulate its own newspaper, highlighting the party’s rallies. Pamphlets are also being distributed decrying the drug abuse in Punjab.
“It is funny that the Badals blame the Centre government for drugs problems and the Centre blames the Badals. If both come to power in Delhi, rivers of drugs will flow here also,” said AAP candidate Jarnail Singh.
