Punjab Congress Express derails in Gill constituency

The Punjab Congress Express has derailed in its mission as the workers of Gill constituency have trained their guns at the party’s senior leadership.

Party ticket aspirants here objected to the campaign which, they said, promoted a certain party leader.

The campaign, featuring a customised mini-bus, rolled out in Gill with MP Ravneet Singh Bittu, MLA Bharat Bhushan Ashu and state Congress V-P Amar Singh as key speakers in Ludhiana.

However, since Amar Singh was a ticket aspirant from Gill constituency, his photographs on the hoardings did not go well with other contenders. The supporters lambasted at the prominent poll strategist Prashant Kishor for crossing a line by “favouring” him even before any formal announcement.

Senior Congress leader and two-time MLA Malkeet Singh Dakha, Youth Congress vice president Sunny Kainth, Kirtinder Singh Singhpura and Nirmal Kaira objected to the apparent “favour”. Dakha alleged he was not allowed on stage either by “bouncers” of Kishor’s team.

However, the duel between Amar Singh and him did not stop, and both took jibes at each other in their speech in Punjabi. The infighting within the party has proved that the party is not united as only a few months are left for the assembly polls.

Dakha said that the team IPAC of Kishore has no right to project one applicant as the party candidate. Even if he (Amar Singh) is a speaker, he should have been replaced for Gill constituency seeing a conflict of interest.

Kainth said that they all have applied for a ticket, not Amar Singh alone. We were not even invited for today’s campaign. A senior leader like Dakha was not allowed to sit on stage, forget about us. Prashant Kishor’s team is not going to announce any ticket. Their work is to promote the party, not dictate. It is now crystal clear that nothing is going smooth in the Punjab Congress and the upcoming assembly polls, the party would see its dead end.


Punjab Congress Express: another stunt to woo the voters


Punjab Congress has come out with another political stunt ‘Punjab Congress Express’ to woo the voters as all the previous plans of the party failed for the political makeover of the party in Punjab.

The party has designed 13 mini buses named ‘Punjab Congress Express’ to meet the people across the state and hold meetings with party workers also. The publicity bus would cover the state according to the route prepared by the party leaders.

Prominent leaders of the party would lead their campaigns in their areas. The party has come out with the Punjab Congress Express so that before the rallies of AICC vice-president Rahul Gandhi in Punjab, the party could cover the state to pull crowds in the rallies.

Punjab Congress has been coming out with a lot of plans to strengthen the party as all plans designed by Prashant Kishore failed to woo the Punjabis. The programme ‘Coffee with Captain’ was designed for the maximum interaction of youth with Capt Amarinder Singh but the programme turned against Amarinder as the youth started questioning him for his absence from the assembly and parliament sessions.

Another programme was designed ‘Halke Wich Captain’ didn’t fetch much response. It’s going on but the response is not good. When the poll strategist Prashant Kishore was hired by the party, he had started an interaction programme in which Capt Amarinder used to meet party workers and supporters.

However, the programme drew flak as the party workers started lambasting at the local and senior leadership for their absenteeism in their respective areas. All programmes designed by the poll strategist didn’t come out well.

The poll strategist has designed the new programme Punjab Congress Express as he feels that the programme would work well. However, this time, he would again disappoint his boss as the people are much aware of the stunts of Punjab Congress.
