Congress, AAP & SP workers join Manish Tewari during padyatra

Chandigarh, May 14 (UNI) Thousands of Congress, Aam Aadmi Party and Samajwadi Party workers on Tuesday joined INDIA bloc Candidate Manish Tewari during his padyatra ahead of filing the nomination papers from Chandigarh Parliamentary Constituency.

As a commitment towards his resolve to preserve and safeguard the constitution of the country, Tewari carried a copy of the Constitution of India. He pointed out, it was the same very Constitution that has given every Indian the right to vote or contest an election.
He said, it was an irony that the same constitution, which has given the people of the country the freedom to elect their representatives and governments, was being threatened by the same people who were getting elected.

In order to avoid inconvenience to the public, the Congress Party candidate decided not to hold any roadshow before filing his nomination papers.
He met his supporters at Sector 17 before he proceeded towards the Deputy Commissioner cum Returning Officer’s office to file his nomination papers.

He was accompanied by the Chandigarh Congress president HS Lucky, AAP Chandigarh Co-incharge SS Ahluwalia, Chairman of the Chandigarh AAP Campaign Committee, Chandermukhi Sharma, Chandigarh Mayor Kuldeep Kumar, SP Chandigarh President Vikram Yadav and others.

There was unprecedented enthusiasm among his supporters who had gathered to greet and wish Tewari before he proceeded to file the nomination papers. The supporters were singing and dancing to the beats of drums. Some lady supporters were seen driving a Tractor also.

Later during an informal conversation with reporters after filing his nomination papers, Tewari, when asked the purpose of carrying a copy of the constitution, said, the purpose was to convey a clear and categorical message to everyone that this Constitution will not be allowed to be changed or replaced.
