In order to get rid of the corrupt politicians, one needs to vote for change and give the new face a chance at least.
Independent MLA and now the Independent candidate from Ludhiana Lok Sabha constituency, Simarjeet Singh Bains stressed this at a lok adalat organised by Maha Sabha in Baba Bhan Singh Park on Sunday.
It was third such adalat; the earlier adalats featured AAP candidate H S Phoolka and CPI candidate Sukwinder Singh.

Bains said that after April 30, he would be floating his new front in Punjab and under that front he would make candidates contest who could bring a change in the corrupt political system. “Once a few from the third front are able to win seats, the main parties will give a second thought to improve themselves or to listen to the masses,” he said.
He called loktantra in Punjab as daangtantra as he said that cane charging was done on the ones who protest for their rights.
The Independent candidate expressed his opposition to the welfare schemes like distribution of Re 1 a kg free atta and Rs 20 a kg pulses as is being done by the SAD-BJP government. “Instead of giving anything free, governments need to focus on rooting out unemployment. Once a person has a job in hand, he will never seek anything for free.”
Bains stated that since 1947, a number of politicians had floated the slogan “garibi hatao” but the poverty never decreased; instead it increased over the years.
Replying to a question over eradication of unemployment, he said that if the government gave good incentives to the industrialists, they would be able to stop the industrialists who as of now were going out of the state. If industry was operating in Punjab, there was no reason for people remaining unemployed, he added.
Bains hit hard at the SAD as he is contesting elections as a SAD rebel.
He said that daily wages should be about Rs 500 a day so that a person could live a healthy life.
After Bains, Congress candidate Ravneet Bittu and SAD candidate Manpreet Singh Ayali are expected to attend such lok adalats in the coming weeks.
