Jalandhar, July 10

People who have been living in the Jalandhar West constituency for several decades said it was a completely different experience for them this time. However, the residents wished that they are not ‘forgotten’ after the bypoll is over.

Kamlesh, an elderly voter who was carrying her granddaughter, said she lived for nearly 55 years in the area, but it was for the first time that she saw the state’s Chief Minister leaving other works and staying in Jalandhar West to supervise the bypoll.

“He recently held a camp in Rasila Nagar too. He listened to our demands and this was something that we experienced for the first time,” she said.

The Tribune visited Basti Sheikh, Model House and Basti Nau areas to check what the voters felt about the large-scale campaigning being carried out for over a month now.

Residents said it was a different experience this time because campaigning was done in a completely different manner. “Now that voting is over, we hope that we will not be forgotten once again,” they hoped.

After casting his vote, Harbans Lal, a 48-year-old daily wager from the Model House area said: “I am a daily wager. I noticed that this time, the scenario was completely different. Now our work should be done”.

Gurdayal Singh (88) from the Basti Nau area in the Jalandhar West constituency said: “My medicines are costly. I don’t want to be a burden on my sons. It feels embarrassing that they have to spend too much on my medicines. I want that health facilities for elderly persons should improve”.

Scenario was different this time
