With the Assembly elections just months away, leaders aspiring for ticket have begun micro-level campaigning through personal contact programmes to drum up support for their candidature.

“The door-to-door campaigning is at its peak, and I hope to cover my constituency of Ballabgarh soon for the second time in the past one year,” says Sharda Rathore, a former MLA from the segment and Congress ticket hopeful.

She said while the party had deputed observers for micro-management in all constituencies, the focus was on strengthening workers and supporters at the booth level. The excellent performance of the party in the recent Lok Sabha elections had given new motivation and zest to the campaign, she added.

Tek Chand Sharma, a former MLA and BJP ticket hopeful from Prithla Assembly segment, said he had been meeting more than 250 persons daily and had established a personal contact with a large number of families in every village. He said campaigning in the Assembly polls required intensive efforts and personal contacts as the success depended more on the image and credibility.

Hem Dagar, a Congress hopeful from Prithla, said he had toured over 90 per cent of the villages and had been meeting several people daily to seek their support in case he was given a ticket to fight the elections. A poster showing him as a probable candidate is pasted on his personal vehicle.

Rakesh Tanwar, another aspirant, said he had been holding corner meetings and a direct interaction with influential persons on a daily basis to remain prepared for the upcoming elections. He stressed the Assembly elections would be a litmus test for both the ruling and the opposition parties.

Baljit Kaushik, a former general secretary of the Haryana Pradesh Congress Committee, said he had activated personal contact programme in the Faridabad segment and had been meeting with a large number of people and families daily. Drummers were hired to welcome him at a programme at Barahi Talab in Old Faridabad here on Sunday. Sumit Gaur, another Congress ticket aspirant from Faridabad, said he had already been involved in an active campaign.
