The last of the candidates of the five major parties —- Congress, BJP, AAP, SAD and BSP —- to file his nomination papers from Jalandhar, Tinu carried out the process at the end of a roadshow which was held from the Kachehri Chowk to the DAC complex. May 14 is the last date for filing nomination papers in the state.

Party workers and supporters bearing the candidate’s cut-outs and a host of yellow AAP flags raised slogans and a band of dholis led Tinu’s procession as he traversed the streets in an open vehicle. Tinu was accompanied by the party’s senior leadership including state Finance Minister Harpal Singh Cheema, Local Bodies Minister Balkar Singh, MLAs Inderjit Kaur and Raman Arora, among others.

Both Tinu and state finance minister Harpal Cheema took on the Central government during their respective addresses today. Tinu reiterated his statement that the Constitution was in danger while the Finance Minister repeated Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal’s claim over Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s age.

At Anita’s nomination, Shekhwat’s jibe at Kejriwal

Union BJP Minister Gajendra Singh Shekhawat took a jibe at Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal as he accompanied the BJP’s Hoshiarpur candidate Anita Som Prakash for her nomination process at Hoshiarpur on Monday. Anita Som Prakash is among BJP’s six nominees who filed their nominations in the state today. Accompanied by her husband Union Minister Som Prakash, Anita filed her nomination in the presence of Union Jal Shakti Minister Gajendra Shekhawat and Rajasthan CM Bhajan Lal Sharma.

Amidst a shower of rose petals, Anita Som Parkash held her roadshow from Government College to the Hoshiarpur City Centre amidst cheers.

Putting up a united face on the seat, the BJP also held a meeting after the nomination process. Union ministers Gajendra Shekhawat, Som Parkash, Rajasthan CM Bhajan Lal Sharma, BJP leaders Sunder Sham Arora, Tikshan Sood and Parvin Bansal, among others, were present on the occasion.

Taking potshots at Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal, Shekhawat said, “Such a government is there in Punjab, neither the intentions nor the policies are clear. Their leader has come out of jail with great difficulty for 10-12 days and is about to go back to jail again. He will go back to jail amidst much fanfare. The party which came with the slogan ‘party with a difference’, has more than half of its Delhi ministers either in jail or those who are about to go to jail.”
