AAP candidate Dr Daljit Singh goes to file his nomination on cycle rickshaw
Aam Aadmi Party nominee from Amritsar, Padamshree Dr Daljit Singh went on a cycle rickshaw in view with the image of his AAP to file his nominations today, unlike some high profile candidates who prefer to utilise helicopter or even fancier mode of transport to file their nominations.
Last time, former MP Navjot Singh Sidhu was seen riding atop an elephant to file his nomination papers.
Dr Daljit's entourage of some 150 people were travelling on foot. Motorised vehicle were conspicuous by their absence. En- route from his home to the district courts, he was stopped at various points by groups of people who came out of their homes to present him with words encouragement for the ensuing elections.
The doctor's genuine humbleness and warm and earthy personality, despite his towering professional and intellectual achievements, contrasts sharply with the stark arrogance of both Captain Amarinder Singh and Arun Jaitely.
Before filing his nomination, he paid obeisance at the famous Shivala Bhaaiyaan and then toured the localities around the shrine. He also visited Sundar Nagar and Tilak Nagar. The state goes to poll on April 30.
