AAP candidate Phoolka confident of winning Ludhiana, says people fed up of the system
Ludhiana: The Aam Aadmi Party is on a high in Ludhiana with 1984 anti-Sikh riots lawyer HS Phoolka in the fray. Even as he is a new entrant in the industrial hub, he seems to have made his presence felt well. Phoolka is confident of winning the Ludhiana Lok Sabha seat this election.
“From the sense that I’m getting from the people of Ludhiana, I see myself easily winning this election,” Phoolka told IBNLive. He also denied any ‘Modi wave’ sweeping the Ludhiana polls.
“The people here want change, they are fed up of the system, corruption and policy paralysis in Ludhiana,” Phoolka added. In his manifesto for Ludhiana, Phoolka has focused on areas like healthcare, industry, anti-drug policies and air connectivity of the constituency.
However, what goes against Phoolka is that he has not been a Ludhiana resident for long. It’s only when he was announced as the Ludhiana candidate that he started to spend more time in the constituency.
But, he says, “I was a Ludhiana resident and now again I am back. I’m going to stay here.”
Phoolka has campaigned aggressively across Ludhiana. Whether this campaigning helps him or not will be decided by the voters on Wednesday, April 30.
