A day after victory of AAP’s Prof Sadhu Singh, who won with a second highest margin from Punjab’s Faridkot, voters celebrated his victory with their own unique style. While a barber did free cutting the whole day, few colonies distributed sweets among each other. Others cleaned their streets with brooms hoping that cleaning of the system will start now.
Progressive book store in the city also offered up to 50 per cent discount on books sold on Saturday. Prof Sadhu Singh defeated SAD’s heavyweight and sitting MP Paramjeet Kaur Gulshan with over 1.72 lakh votes thus wresting this seat from SAD, which was with them for the past 15 years. A retired Principal and author of few books, Prof Sadhu Singh was a teacher at a private nursing college when he decided to contest elections.
It was his first election, which gave him a jackpot, say his supporters. He had become a member of the Aam Aadmi Party only 5-6 months back. Sadhu Singh along with his supporters went to Baba Farid Tilla and thanked voters, while Barber Bhupinder Singh gave free hair cuts throughout the day on Sunday to celebrate his victory. Youngsters of Mata Godri Sahib colony swept the colonies with ‘brooms’ and celebrated at various parts of the constituency.
Sadhu Singh was so sure of his victory that laddoo preparation had started two days back in halwai shops where orders had been placed by AAP workers and the distribution took place on Saturday. Meanwhile, Singh will be chalking out a plan to work for a complete cleaning of the system.
” I will deliver what I promised. And a change in system will be done,” he said. In this election, Congress finished third with a margin of 2.78 lakh votes from the winning candidate. Meanwhile, Congress ex-MLA Ajit Singh Shant recently joined SAD while Congress MLA Joginder Pal Jain had switched to SAD and even won by over 28,000 votes in Moga. But that did not work for the party.
