A day after a road show in Chawinda Devi of Majitha constituency, BJP candidate fom Amritsar Arun Jaitley landed up in the Majitha town for a road show, in an apparent effort to consolidate its votebank in this rural segment.

Banking on the rural belts dominated by Akalis, the BJP candidate is making repeated visits to Majitha, Attari and other rural segments to make the most of out of them.

Organised by revenue minister Bikram Singh Majithia, Jaitley's road show received an overwhelming response in Majitha town it witnessed a jam-packed situation all over its route.

Moving through the streets of Majitha, Jaitley promised that once the NDA government is formed, funds would be no problem for Amritsar and Majitha.

Addressing a gathering, Jaitley said, "Majithia has done a lot of development work in Majitha but I promise you that there will be no dearth of funds when NDA comes to power".

Both Jaitley and Majithia lashed out at the former's Congress rival Amarinder by targeting him over a range of issues.

The BJP candidate, who was moving in an open jeep, was welcomed with garlands and drumbeats wherever he went.

As the caravan of vehicles moved through bazaars, Majithia was seen moving into streets on foot, touching the feet of elderly and interacting with shopekeepers. He was also weighed against ladoos during the road show.

Facing a tough battle against Amarinder in Amritsar, the SAD-BJP is trying to garner maximum votes from the rural segments. In 2009 Lok Sabha polls too, Sidhu won primarily due to bigger support from the rural areas.

Jaitley has also made regular visits to Ajnala and Rajasansi to make an impact in these rural segments.
