Former minister Rana criticises sitting MLA

  • Former minister Harbans Rana asks voters to support Sanjay Guleria, vice-chairman of the National Small Saving State Advisory Board.
  • He says voters are angry with sitting MLA Arjun Thakur

Rana claimed that voters were angry with Jawali MLA Arjun Thakur and he was not capable of winning the upcoming election.

Rana, who has represented the constituency thrice, said Guleria was a philanthropist, who had been involved in various social activities and had extended financial support to the needy on several ocassions.

“I have been a minister but I still live in the same old house. However, the sitting MLA has constructed a palatial house,” he alleged.

He said that the people of Jawali didn’t want such an MLA. People should come in politics with an objective to serve people and not for building splendid houses.

The former minister urged voters to support Guleria, as he was hopeful that the party would give him the ticket to fight the forthcoming Assembly election from Jawali.
