Gandhi seeks votes, funds too
The incumbent MP and Punjab Democratic Alliance (PDA) nominee from the Patiala constituency, Dr Dharamvira Gandhi is relying on direct contact with voters and propagating the need for “opium and poppy husk farming in the state” to save farmers. Perhaps he is one of the few incumbent MPs in the country who is asking for votes and money from the gathering to keep his campaigning afloat.
“I spent every penny of my MPLAD funds and ensured that villages with common cremation grounds are given priority. Now my priorities are farmers and the youth for whom I am committed to do something in my next term,” says Gandhi. Fighting on a “mike” symbol, he carries his own mike to save costs and ensures to tell voters that he is not an AAP candidate.
