On Wednesday afternoon, soon after meeting senior Congress leaders in the party’s head office on Akbar Road, Vijender Singh, Congress’ South Delhi candidate went on an unplanned ride which, he said, was to “connect” with the people of the constituency.
He recorded a Facebook Live while meeting with the people in the constituency. In the video clip, Singh, accompanied by a few Congress supporters, could be seen attacking the Aam Aadmi Party and the Bharatiya Janata Party.
Singh and his associates also visited a closed Mohalla Clinic in South Delhi and accusing the party of not delivering on promises. The video, however, did not disclose the location of the Mohalla Clinic.
The professional boxer, who won a Bronze Medal at the 2008 Beijing Olympics, also recorded a garbage dump nearby and criticised the BJP on the Swachh Bharat campaign.
Singh was the last candidate to be announced by the Congress for Delhi. The name of Sushil Kumar, another Olympian, was also doing the rounds as the probable Congress candidate from the constituency.
Delhi goes to the polls on May 12.
