Paramjit Kaur Gulshan
The voters allege that you have been absent from your constituency?
Paramjit Kaur Gulshan: No, this is not true, actually the constituency is very large and the people have high expectations from their MP. So it becomes difficult to be present everywhere. There is also parliament session which is to be attended.
It means they are not right in saying so?
Paramjit Kaur Gulshan: As I have told earlier also, there might be some short comings left and if again given a chance to serve the people, I shall try to perform my best.
Is development also a major issue during the elections?
Paramjit Kaur Gulshan: I have spent almost all the MPLAD funds which I got from the centre. But being in opposition, any big project or funds had been a problem for me.
Why do you want that people should vote for you?
Joginder Singh: The SAD government has failed at all the fronts. There is no development and local MP has failed to meet the expectations of the people of the constituency. The SAD government is promoting drugs and destroying the youth.
People of your constituency accuse you on the non performance. What do you want to say?
Joginder Singh: I am a MLA of the opposition party and it is the Punjab government which has failed to allot grants for the development of all the areas.
A youth leader from your party alleged that state president had chosen a tainted candidate?
Joginder Singh: No, it’s a very old case and the court had acquitted me in that case. You can ask the people who are promoting drugs -- it is the Akalis.
