Panipat: Electoral activities have started picking up pace and all parties are trying hard to reach out to the voters at the booth level. After the BJP, the Congress has started gearing up for the upcoming Lok Sabha elections in Sonepat. Senior Congress leaders stressed the need to strengthen the party at the booth level by connecting with the youth under the ‘Booth Jodo Youth Jodo’ programme. JJP leader Dushyant Chautala also referred to youth workers as ‘booth warrior’ and ‘booth sakhi’ at a religious programme held in villages of the Baroda and Kharkhoda constituencies.

Differences among farm unions

Kurukshetra: The differences between the farmer leaders have come to the fore once again after the BKU (Charuni) faction decided to stay away from the ‘Delhi Chalo’ call given by farmers’ leaders from Punjab and Haryana. BKU (Charuni) head Gurnam Singh Charuni had played a crucial role in the previous agitation. Charuni claimed that he was not invited or taken into confidence before the call for the Feb 13 march. Punjab farmer leader Ramandeep Singh, however, claimed that he had discussed the matter with Charuni in January.

No media interaction at vet varsity

Hisar: The authorities of Lala Lajpat Rai University of Veterinary and Animal Sciences (LUVAS) seem to have imposed an unwritten diktat on university officials and faculty members — don’t interact with mediapersons! When contacted by the press for any information, the scientists say they have directions from the ‘top’ not to speak with mediapersons. On being reached for his response, the VC did not answer the call.

Embarrassment for ruling party leaders

Faridabad: The ongoing agitation near Mohna village in the district for grant of access to the upcoming Greenfield Expressway is causing embarrassment to the ruling party leaders. Two MLAs — a former minister and an MP — have met the Union Minister concerned regarding the matter in two months. Though these meetings had been claimed to be successful in highlighting the grievances of the people and a positive outcome was assured ‘within a week’, no concrete action has been taken.

Prospective candidate for Bhiwani-M’garh seat

Mahendragarh: The name of Union Minister Bhupinder Yadav is doing the rounds as a prospective BJP candidate from the Bhiwani-Mahendragarh Lok Sabha seat and his supporters have reportedly started exploring different locations in the district to open his election office. “We have information that the party is contemplating fielding Yadav from Mahendragarh, so we are looking for a suitable location for his election office,” said one of his supporters.

Congress puts up united front

Karnal: In a significant display of unity, leaders from various factions of the Congress party came together on Saturday to present a united front before MLA BB Batra, newly appointed coordinator for the Karnal Lok Sabha constituency. Supporters of Bhupinder Singh Hooda, Kumari Selja, Randeep Surjewala and Kiran Choudhary set aside their differences and shared the stage. They decided to back the party’s official nominee and announced that they would reach out to the people under the “Ghar Ghar Congress” campaign. As many as 48 wannabe MPs have applied for the party’s Lok Sabha ticket from Karnal.
