Press Release/17th September 2017

AAP has decided to field Major General Retd. Mr. Suresh Khajuria as its candidate from the Gurdaspur Lok Sabha seat, due for polling on 11th October 2017. The decision to field Mr. Khajuria has been taken after due diligence with the Gurdaspur unit of the party and the Majha region leaders and volunteers.

It is pertinent to mention here that 64 years old Major General Suresh Khajuria is an old party volunteer and is a local resident of Pathankot falling within the Gurdaspur Lok Sabha. We are proud to state that our candidate has a distinguished career in the armed forces by serving the country. While candidates of both the traditional parties i.e. BJP and the Congress are likely to be outsiders and parachuters.

Therefore, we appeal to the electorate of Gurdaspur to support AAP candidate in the ensuing election and we particularly appeal to the ex-servicemen of the region to support him as neither the Congress nor the BJP has fulfilled the long pending demand of ‘One Rank-One Pension’ of the ex-servicemen community. Date of nomination will be announced shortly.

      WHEN BJP IS GOING TO LINK AADHAR CARD WITH THE VOTING CARD?
      BJP said that if they win 2014 Parliamentarian election, they will Scrap Congress’s AADHAR CARD! But after winning they have linked everything with the Congress Aadhar Card. They have made Aadhar Card their everything and without Aadhar Card BJP cannot survive. OK. No Problem. But link Aadhar Card with the Voting Card!

      IT HAS BECOME AN USUAL PRACTICE TO PRAISE THE PERSON THAN THE PERFORMANCE. PUNJAB IS TWILTING WITH DRUGS. WHAT AAP OR THE PROSPECTIVE CANDIDATE HAS DONE. BARE WORDS BUY NO BARLEY.. HOW RAM RAHIMS AIDE COULD AVOID ARREST FOR A LONG 40 DAYS THROWING DUST IN THE EYES OF POLICE AND DISOBEYING THE LAWS. THIS HAS ALSO HAPPENED IN PUNJAB. DO U NEED FURTHER INFN.
