City's Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Lok Sabha candidate, Kirron Kher, urged people to ensure that Congress member of Parliament (MP), Pawan Kumar Kumar, Bansal did not get the 'I-card of Parliament', in the coming elections, here on Monday.
Addressing the Footpath Workers Union in Sector 20, Kher claimed that Bansal had failed to give them identity. “The sitting MP of Congress, Pawan Kumar Bansal, has failed to provide you identity cards in the past 15 years. This time, you should not vote for Bansal, so that he does not get his ID card at Parliament,” Kher said, while the union members clapped.
Kher said BJP's prime ministerial candidate, Narendra Modi, understood the problems of the poor. Modi, along with his father, used to sell tea, and could understand the poor, she added.
At another meeting at Haryana accountant general's (AG) office in Sector 33, Kirron said BJP would take care of the government, and the government (if elected) would take care of them.
The BJP candidate held around eight rallies and one road show in the city on Monday. Beginning her campaign with a public rally at Mani Majra, she addressed five rallies at different place, including Ram Darbar, Hallomajra, Makhanmajra, Raipur Khurd and Behlana village.
The party claimed that nearly 500 youths from different parts of the city joined BJP at the rally in Hallomajra. A road show was organised at Sector 39 and 40 in the evening, in which she was accompanied by party local unit chief, Sanjay Tandon, and former MP, Satya Pal Jain. Kher and Tandon also carried out a padyatra in Vikas Nagar.
