Haryana Congress chief and party candidate from Sirsa (reserved) Lok Sabha seat, Ashok Tanwar on Sunday accused the BJP of not delivering on its poll promises made in 2014.
Tanwar, while addressing public meetings in Sirsa said that the BJP has done nothing for the people of the country as well as the state. They (BJP) only divided people on the basis of religion and caste, he alleged.
The Congress leader said that he would ensure development of Sirsa as an industrial hub on the lines of Gurugram and Faridabad.
The BJP has stopped all development projects that were initiated when I was the MP from Sirsa five years ago. I promise to restart all the pending works, he said.
A day after filing his nomination papers from Sirsa parliamentary constituency, the Congress leader said that the Sirsa segment used to be the stronghold of the Indian National Lok Dal but now the party has been completely wiped out in the entire state.
The result of Lok Sabha election would spell doom for the INLD, he added.
Tanwar further said that people has made up their minds to get the Congress back to power at the Centre.
Taking a dig at BJP’s chowkidar campaign, he said that from 2014 to 2019, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has changed his name from chaiwala to chowkidar. The fact is that the Narendra Modi government has lost the trust of the masses, he added.
Notably, the former MP Tanwar had lost to INLD’s Charanjeet Singh Rori in 2014 polls.
