Seeking votes for Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) candidate Om Prakash Dhankar in the Badli assembly segment on Monday, former BJP MP Navjot Singh Sidhu said if the saffron party was voted to power in the state, Dhankar might be entrusted with some important position in the government.

Appealing to the voters, the cricketer-turned-politician said if Dhankar got elected to the Haryana assembly, in the next five years, he would bring more development to the constituency than the people had seen in the last 50 years.

Training guns on the ruling Congress on the last day of campaigning, Sidhu accused that the UPA government under party president Sonia Gandhi had looted the country, while Bhupinder Singh Hooda government had plundered Haryana in the last 10 years.

On Om Prakash Chautala-led Indian National Lok Dal (INLD), Sidhu, who is a popular face on television, said Haryana people had already witnessed the ‘goondaraj’ of the green brigade. Urging the electorate to vote for the saffron party, he asked the voters to ensure that the state BJP candidates got elected to the assembly in order to bring development in the state.

Lauding Prime Minister Narendra Modi, he said the country has got a PM who was keenly heard all across the globe, including United State of America, and if BJP could form a majority government in Haryana, then Modi's mission of development for 125 crore Indians would materialise.
