Former Congress MLA Venod Sharma on Sunday announced that he would soon be launching a new political party in the state as the people of the state were fed up with the ruling Congress government.

Talking to mediapersons at his residence here, he said the name of new party would be ‘Jan Chetna Party’, which was approved by the Election Commission, while other modalities were being worked out. Claiming that the party would be headquartered at Ambala, he said the central committee office bearers would be announced in 10 days time and the party would be officially launched by the middle of the next month.

In reply to a question, Sharma said his outfit would have no truck with any other political party and would contest the upcoming assembly election in 80-90 assembly segments on the plank of development and good governance. Ruling out the possibility of his joining any other party, he said he would contest the election from Ambala City, which he had nursed for the past nine years, while candidates with good image would be fielded from other seats.

Coming down heavily on the Bhupinder Singh Hooda government, the MLA said Hooda was indulging in poll eve gimmicks by making populist announcements, even as there was no intention to fulfil them.

OMG! MSG is finally here

For once, Salman bhai must be having sleepless nights, and Shahrukh Khan must already be counting his days in the industry. PK or no PK, Aamir ‘sincere’ Khan would probably be the only Khan of the troika who would somehow find a way to remain in the industry despite this tsunami. Even Rajinikanth must be mulling retirement after all.Writes Aarish Chhabra
