Muktsar, November 10

Navjot Kaur Lambi, 22, a resident of Lambi, who hogged the limelight with her fiery speeches while canvassing for Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) candidates during the Assembly elections in 2017, is now being wooed by all other parties.

She claims not just the Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD), Congress, AAP, but an aide of Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav too contacted her to campaign in the Punjabi belt of the Uttar Pradesh in the upcoming Assembly elections.

Navjot, a student of MSc-II (Geography), daughter of a marginal farmer, says, “I left the AAP in 2018 when Arvind Kejriwal apologised to Bikram Singh Majithia over his statement on drug trade. I then supported Sukhpal Singh Khaira. After the Lok Sabha elections, I left him too as my family circumstances did not allow me to do politics that time. However, I am actively participating in farmers’ protests.”

“I am yet to make my mind on which political outfit to support. I am just 22 years old so cannot contest the Assembly elections till I turn 25,” Navjot Kaur said. — TNS
