My fight is for human rights: Khalra
“Lok chahunde hun ke es seat nu ek tarike naal lareya jaave. Eh manukkhi adhikaran di larai hai. Ehde karke lok ohnan te dabaa bana rahe si (people want that this seat be contested in a planned way. This is a fight for human rights. Hence people were also pressurising them),” said Bibi Paramjit Kaur Khalra, a day after the SAD (Taksali) withdrew the candidature of its Khadoor Sahib nominee, former Army Chief Gen JJ Singh, in her favour.
In her first visit to Kapurthala as a part of her campaign, Khalra was unusually calm as her speech was sans any of the characteristic potshots which candidates take against their opponents. While the Akali Dal has pitched Bibi Jagir Kaur against her, Khalra’s entire focus is on her husband’s sacrifice and her 24-year-old fight for justice while addressing villagers.
