AAP leader Rakhi Birla visit to Patiala came as major embarrassment for the local unit after Birla reached city four hours late than scheduled time.
This made Dr Dharamvir Gandhi, AAP candidate from Patiala, to start the road show on his own as Birla failed to turn up at the scheduled time.
As per available information, Birla, who visited the city in support of party candidate, was to start the road show from Baran village, situated on the outskirts of Patiala at 3: 15pm but made her supporters wait for more than hour before Gandhi started the procession on his own along with his supporters.
Birla joined the AAP cavalcade near Ratan Nagar around 7pm and rallied through different parts of the city.
However, despite being late, heavy rush was witnessed at impressive road show as besides four wheelers, around 200 motorcycle accompanied the cavalcade. She also addressed gatherings at different places in support of Gandhi.
"The time has come to change stereotype politicians who did nothing except corruption after being elected as representatives of people", she said while addressing a rally at Rajpura colony.
