Congress ignored the problems of less privileged communities: Kirron Kher
Chandigarh March 28, 2014: If the local MP had been an efficient leader then the people of Chandigarh would not have to run from pillar to post to get their issues resolved. This was stated by the Bharatiya Janata Party’s MP candidate for Lok Sabha seat of the city, Kirron Kher today. She has participated in a political debate held at Maharashtra Bhawan, Sector 19 which was organized by the Chandigarh Confederation of Workers and Employees. The senior leaders from other parties who took part in the debate included H S Lucky, Congress, Manish Kumar, BSP, Kamaljot, CPI, Gul Panag, Aam Aadmi Party.
Touching the sensitive issues, Kirron Kher raised many important questions at the debate. “Why didn’t the sitting congress MP, Pawan Kumar Bansal raise the issue of providing regular jobs to contractual workers at the centre? Despite getting the full support from the voters, the four-time MP failed to represent Chandigarh’s problems in an effective manner in the Parliament”, she said.
Kirron Kher said that if given a chance then she would fight for the rights of people in Parliament and would stand for the welfare of city residents.
On this occasion, the President of the Confederation, Bhupinder Singh highlighted the demands of the workers and employees.
After participating in the debate, Kirron Kher reached to address a public meeting at Hind Press Man Dhobi Parishad, Sector 24. Talking to the community of Washermen (Dhobis), she said, “If I get a chance to serve the people of Chandigarh then I will ensure the basic infrastructure for Dhobis like proper sheds and adequate supply of electricity. The congress has ignored the problems of less privileged communities. If the BJP comes into the power at the centre under the leadership of Narendra Modi then there would be development on all fronts”.
The Parishad, President, Janaki Prasad assured Kirron Kher that the association would extend full support to her. To address the employees of Punjab and Haryana Civil Secretariat, Kirron Kher joined them over lunch. She was accompanied by the BJP’s state President, Sanjay Tandon, Senior Leader, Satya Pal Jain and councilor Saurabh Joshi.
While addressing the gathering she said that the employees were facing many problems due to the wrong policies of the Congress government. She assured them if she would represent the city then she would take a strong stand for the issues of employees. On this occasion, the retired employees, Uma Kant Tiwari and Vishal Bharti said that keeping the superintendents and clerk level employees under the same grade was not justified.
