Tribune News Service

Panchkula, December 25

The campaigning for the Panchkula Municipal Corporation elections ended today, setting the stage for around 1.85 lakh voters to choose their representatives on December 27. The results will be declared on December 30.

The posts of mayor and 20 councillors are up for grabs. The party leaders and contesting candidates today made last-ditch efforts to woo voters. For the BJP, Haryana Speaker and local MLA Gian Chand Gupta, Ranjeeta Mehta and the party's mayoral candidate Kulbhushan Goyal led the campaign, while the Congress' last day campaign saw participation of party's national spokesperson Randeep Surjewala apart from local faces.

Will serve city again: Ahluwalia

My party is clearly winning these elections. People are with us. Will serve the city once again. — Upinder Kaur Ahluwalia, Cong nominee

Vote for BJP, vote for development: Gupta

Haryana Speaker and Panchkula MLA Gian Chand Gupta, who was campaigning for the party's councillor candidate in ward number 8, said, "You saw the campaigning of every party ndash; their ideology and agenda in the recent past. You know about their working style as well. You know who can stand by you. You know everything. Think about it throughout the day tomorrow and vote for the right party." In another event, he urged the voters of Panchkula to choose the BJP, which, he said, was a synonym to development.

Surjewala hits out at BJP-JJP government

Senior Congress leader Randeep Surjewala, who was addressing a rally at Khatauli village, said a reverse counting of the Haryana Government would begin with the defeat of the BJP in the Panchkula Municipal Corporation election. He criticised the BJP-JJP government for its "unconstitutional attempts" to stop farmers from marching towards Delhi.

At the same event, Congress leader and former deputy chief minister Chander Mohan said, "The voters in Panchkula are eagerly waiting to teach them a lesson for forcing farmers to leave farms and sit on roads against farm laws."

"We all are directly and indirectly linked to farmers. The real face of the BJP has started to appear before the public now. The party senior leaders are facing wrath from all sections of society in the country. They have failed to wake up from their sleep, thanks to their autocratic style of working," he added.
