Chandigarh:

The Congress communication cell in charge Randeep Singh Surjewala on Monday hinted at Navin Jindal opting out of the poll contest in Kurukshetra parliamentary constituency.


While discussing this with party workers at Kaithal, local MLA Surjewala added that he was not Congress candidate for the seat, but the party was seriously considering the name of a senior leader in place of Jindal. He added that the industrialist with an interest in steel and power continued to be the top choice of the party.

Surjewala also launched the election campaign of Haryana Congress chief Ashok Tanwar by opening the party’s election offices in Narwana and other places. Surjewala had won Narwana constituency in 2004 elections by defeating INLD supremo Om Parkash Chautala.

“You don’t worry about the candidate for the constituency. You should all have in mind that each and every vote polled will strengthen the party as well as Rahul Gandhi. Hence, you all should work for Congress victory in all 9 assembly constituencies of Kurukshetra,” said Surjewala.

In Narwana, Surjewala and Tanwar urged the workers, especially youngsters, to launch counter attacks on the fake and malicious message in social media against the Congress and its leaders.

“All that you have to do is to remind people about the progress of the country during the 10 years of UPA rule. Talk about the traumatic experience of people during and after demonetisation and other failures of the Modi government at Centre and the Khattar government in Haryana,” Surjewala said.

He also accused both he governments of resorting to divisive politics and anti-Dalit stances. Surjewala said besides poisoning the society, the BJP government had created a clear divide among all 36 communities.

He said a Dalit leader of the BJP was not allowed to speak in Palwal and similarly another person was humiliated on stage by Nayab Singh Saini, Haryana minister and saffron party candidate from Kurukshetra.
