The countings and strategies are set to stroke by the former union minister and new entrant of AAP
After accreted the Aam Admi Party, Harmohan Dhawan rest assured to fight the next Loksabha contest from Chandigarh seat. According to the source, a formal announcement will be held by the central leadership of AAP within a fortnight.
After getting the announcement, Dhawan will kick start his election campaign earlier than other political parties. As per the sources, AAP convener Arvind Kejriwal is set to hold a rally in Chandiharh on the beginning of next year, ipso facto, the election campaign of Dhawan will pick up.
AAP had remarkable result in 2014 parliamentary poll, with 1.8 lakh votes and stood third after Congress candidate Pawan Kumar Bansal, who had secured 1.21 Lakh votes. AAP’s candidate Gul Panag was just behind 13000 votes from Bansal. Last time AAP’s performance in the city gives the party an extra vim.
Dhawan has contested Loksabha elections 7 times, with more than 10 political parties in his 34 years long political career. The first time, he won the election at 1989. Continued as an MP for 11 months and became the Civil Aviation Minister, but his chair could be barricaded just for 4 months.
Internal tussle within parties become
the strength of Dhawan
The movement of former Union Minister poses a challenge and major blow for both the ruling one BJP and main opposition party Congress. Which are already passing through internal tussles? If the same trend continues, Dhawan could have a mileage. However, regaining the political glimmer in the constituency is not going to be a breeze for Dhawan. He has to take up the gauntlet of endorsing youths and new voters of the city.
Whereas, Congress exerts on the issues of Metro Rail project, parking, traffic, law and order, hefty taxes of corporation to woo the upper and medium class, on the other hand Dhawan would like to make his battle plan on slum dwellers, poor, health system of the city, rude and cruel attitude of city administration to seduce the migrated and lower class.
