Chandigarh, May 19

Former Union minister and Congress candidate from Chandigarh Lok Sabha seat Pawan Kumar Bansal on Sunday expressed confidence of big victory in the General Election.

He was talking to mediapersons after casting his vote at a booth in Sector 28.

Bansal along with his wife Madhu Bansal and two sons stood for more than an hour in the queue to cast his vote.

He said the overwhelming enthusiasm shown by city residents for polling is a clear indication that they want change and the Congress is going to win Chandigarh with a big margin. “The Congress is going to form the next government at the Centre as the people of the country have fed up with the Narendra Modi government,” Bansal said.

“The city residents have already decided to teach a lesson to the BJP. Due to the non-performance of local MP Kirron Kher in the last five years, the people will vote for the Congress,” he added.

On the question of Modi factor in Chandigarh, Bansal said it is nowhere seen in the city. Also, the election in Chandigarh is fought on local issues, he added.

“During my visits in the last two months, I found anger within residents after watching the dismal performance of the city in every field. Kher not only avoided the direct debate but also used unparliamentary language against him, which showed her frustration,” Bansal said.
