S.P.Pandey, Chandigarh, 29 Mar : The BJP candidate for Chandigarh parliamentary constituency Mr Satya Pal Jain today said that the congress party is seeking votes for its failure after having failed on every front in Chandigarh. The party says officers do not listen to us – so please vote for us; we have not delivered on our promises – please vote for us; we were unable to get the approved railway line built – please vote for us; we were unable to get lal-dora extended – but vote for us; we got houses demolished – please vote for us. Addressing several public rallies in sector 15, 18 and 20. He said earlier Congress had been saying we do not have power at the centre or the governor or officers are not ‘our people’ but now Chandigarh Municipal Corporation is Congress controlled, Chandigarh MP belongs to Congress party and he is a member of the union council of ministers. Government of India is in hands of Congress led United Progressive Alliance (UPA). Chandigarh Administration is in the hands of Chandigarh Administrator a representative of Union Government of Congress led UPA. Why should the voter vote for the person who is just serving excuses? He said people of Chandigarh do not want a helpless representative who is offering excuses all the time and not delivering on his promises, they want a representative who can get there problems addressed and contribute to the development of the city.
Today the city is facing shortage of houses, people are suffering demolitions of their houses. City does not have a power plant of its own, traffic is a serious problem; houses outside lal-dora and need based internal changes in houses need regularisation, there is need of a service selection board for Chandigarh itself and all these problems cannot be solved be excuse mongering. speedy development of the city calls for a representative who does not remain confined to promises but also uses farsightedness to address problems of the city. Involving the citizens especially the educated members of the Chandigarh population is essential. The voter should be respected.He said on coming to power NDA government will solve all these problems on a priority basis.
