This election is referendum on Modi’s non-performance: Manish Tewari

NAWANSHAHR: The Congress nominee  from Sri Anandpur Sahib parliamentary constituency Manish Tewari today said that this General Election was a referendum on the non-performance of the Modi government at the centre as also that of the local MP. 

Addressing a workers meeting organized by the local MLA Angad Singh at nearby village Saloh, Tewari said that  the last five years of the NDA rule presided over by Narendra Modi had not only seen the erosion of the democratic institutions, but widespread unemployment and decline in the economy.

Appealing people to vote with caution, he said, this election was also the most important one as it concerned the future of India. “You are going to choose and elect a government that will decide and determine the future of the country and you have seen for yourself what happened during the last five years”, he told the workers while seeking vote for the party.

He said, the way they had voted for Capt Amarinder Singh in 2017 giving him 77 assembly seats, in a similar way they must vote for the Congress this time also as it is the only party that takes along everyone and does not discriminate against anyone irrespective of caste, creed or colour.

Referring to the sitting MP and Akali candidate Prem Singh Chandumajra, Tewari said, like the entire electorate of Sri Anandpur Sahib constituency, he was dismayed over the way he had treated the Khatkar Kalan, which he had chosen as model village. “If a sacred place like Khatkar Kalan can meet such a fate you can well imagine the plight of the rest of the constituency”, he observed, while lamenting the criminal indifference of Chandumajra towards his constituency.

Urging people to give him a chance, he promised that he will serve the people of Sri Anandpur Sahib in much better way than he served the people of Ludhiana for ten years between 2004 (when he first contested elections from there) and 2014. “Now the party has assigned me to work for this constituency and I promise to you that I will do it to best of my abilities”, he promised.

Addressing the meeting local MLA Angad Singh expressed gratitude to the party leadership for giving ticket to a dynamic and promising leader like Tewari. He said, it was a privilege for the people of the area to have someone like Tewari to represent them in the parliament and they will ensure his victory with a record margin.
MLA, Angad Singh, former  MLA, Gur Iqbal Kaur, DCC president Prem Chand Bheema, MC chief, Lalit Mohan Pathak, among others, also addressed the gathering.
