Punjab Assembly polls: Family members pitch in for contestants
Fifteen-year-old Aekom Warring maybe too young for politics but not for canvassing and is busy making a connect with voters in her father Amarinder Singh Raja Warring's Gidderbaha Assembly constituency in Punjab.
With folded hands, Aekom Warring goes from house-to-house greeting voters and asking them to elect her father for the development work carried out by him in the last 10 years.
Family members of several other contestants in the fray for the February 20 Punjab Assembly polls are going door-to-door to garner support for the coming elections.
With a ban on big gatherings and rallies by the Election Commission of India in view of COVID-19, family members of candidates are meeting voters personally to ensure they vote for their contestants.
Aekom Warring exudes confidence that voters of Gidderbaha will vote for her father for the “unprecedented” development works carried out during the last 10 years and make him victorious again.
“My father did what he promised to the people of the area,” she says while adding that she is getting a very good response from the people.
An elderly man in a village even praises Amarinder Singh Raja Warring for ensuring water to his fields when the teenager visits his house.
A few days back Aekom Warring inaugurated the poll office of her father in Gidderbaha. Amarinder Singh Raja Warring became the transport minister when Charanjit Singh Channi took over the chief minister last September.
Starting her campaigning at 7:30 am, Khangura returns home in the evening only.
“It is not that for the first time or second time I am visiting people. I frequently go to them and I get a warm welcome,” she says On how she views AAP leader Bhagwant Mann as a contestant against her husband, Khangura says she does not see him anywhere.
The AAP leader does not have anything to say for what he did for this area, she adds.
