Fatehgarh Churian/Gurdaspur, Apr 26 UNI | 3 months ago

Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee president Partap Singh Bajwa today said the much hyped whirlwind tour of the BJP's prime ministerial candidate, Narendra Modi, failed to create even a ripple in Punjab.

The people in the state were filled up anger against the autocratic, degenerated and corrupt rule of the Akali Dal-BJP government headed by Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal.

He said the gathering at Pathankot where Mr Modi addressed his first rally, yesterday, was too thin which betrayed the real situation of Vinod Khanna, who, has been fielded by the BJP candidate from Gurdaspur, the constituency he represented thrice earlier.

Mr Bajwa, who is seeking re-election from Gurdaspur, said if a person who had been MP from this constituency thrice failed to gather even a few thousand people, one could visualise the result of May 16 even today. He predicted a humiliating defeat for Mr Khanna.

He said the situation at Hoshiarpur and Ludhiana was no different.
