Jalandhar, July 8

As the campaigning for the Jalandhar West bypoll ended here this evening, all parties held events to conclude their canvassing for their respective candidates.

While the Congress organised a foot march through the markets of the area, CM Bhagwant Mann held public meetings in some wards of the constituency. BJP candidate Sheetal Angural, who had been holding roadshows for the past few days, concluded the campaign with meetings.

Ahead of organising the foot march, PCC chief Amarinder S Raja Warring and LoP Partap Bajwa held a press conference alleging that the state government had been misusing power to have an edge. Around 4 pm, Warring, accompanied by candidate Surinder Kaur and party leaders and workers, took out a foot march.

Warring remained engaged with the electorates, who turned out to see them. Surinder Kaur thanked them saying, “I am grateful to be showered with love and affection during my campaign. I assure you that I will work for the betterment of the constituency. Turncoats of the AAP and the BJP have created a mockery out of politics. It is time for actual work to be done for the people.”

Bhagwant Mann held public rallies in ward nos. 75 and 36 falling in the Basti Peer Daad and Bhargo Camp areas, respectively. He was accompanied by Ashok Prashar, AAP MLA from Ludhiana. Mann urged people to vote only for AAP candidate Mohinder Bhagat.

BJP candidate Sheetal Angural and his family remained engaged with some meetings. Angural was also active on FB where he levelled more allegations against the AAP this evening. He talked of curbs and controls that the party exercised even on MLAs by giving them scripts for every speech which they were made to follow strictly.
