BJP candidate Kirron Kher and Gul Panag from the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) on Friday  filed their nominations for the Chandigarh Lok Sabha seat.

Kirron filed her papers with the returning officer here followed by Gul Panag, an election office spokesman said. Kirron was accompanied by her actor husband Anupam Kher, local BJP President Sanjay Tandon two times ex-MP Satya Pal Jain.

Putting up a brave face despite meeting initial resistance from certain sections of the local BJP against her candidature, Kirron said that there were no differences within the party.

Asked about ex-MP Harmohan Dhawan, who was a front runner for the saffron party ticket, she said “I am confident that Dhawan will canvass for me.”

Seeking to downplay the disaccord within Chandigarh BJP over Kirron’s candidature, her husband Anupam Kher said differences do surface in a family as well.

“Differences do occur among members of a family as well but these get resolved,” he said.

He exuded confidence that the entire Chandigarh BJP leadership will support Kirron and “fall in line” reposing faith in her.

Meanwhile, Dhawan, who was conspicuous by his absence during Kirron’s nomination, continued to keep his cards close to his chest and maintained that he will take any decision after having feedback from his supporters here.

As Kirron left the venue, AAP’s candidate Gul Panag filed her nomination with the returning officer.

She was accompanied by her father H S Panag and other supporters.

Earlier incumbent MP Pawan Kumar Bansal of Congress, who has represented Chandigarh four times in the Lok Sabha, and
Jannat Jahan of BSP had filed their nominations on last Tuesday.
Chandigarh is going to polls on April 10.

    Arvind Kejriwal is India’s biggest scam.Arvind Kejriwal’s NGO ‘Sampoorna Parivartan’ and CSDS (Center for the Study of Developing Societies) have been granted $80,000 and the $250,000 respectively. Key ociates of Arvind Kejriwal like Yogendra Yadav, have been functionaries of the CSDS. What makes this funding to Kejriwal a criminal activity is the fact that he in 2002 was still a government servant and therefore not enled to receive it. Government servants are not permitted to float NGOs without due permission.Kejriwal branched off from Parivartan to establish yet another NGO, Kabir. As per the doents, Kabir was established on 15 August 2005. This was again illegal, as Kejriwal continued to be in government service.It has also been established that CIA operatives operate through the academic route. One such academic researcher Ms Shimrit Lee was ociated with Kejriwal’s Kabir NGO in the garb of doing research on ‘Public Power: India and Other Democracies’. Ms Lee specializes in Tahrir Square type demonstrations that we are now witnessing in Ukraine. She has been active in Cairo, Haifa, Chad and Israel, India and US. It is she who introduced the ideas of Mohalla Committees and brought the Arab Spring technology to India to launch KejriwalThat the US has been using the Dutch for pushing its agenda in India, which includes destabilization of India’s Northeast is known.It is also well known as to how the CIA and the Dutch Intelligence Agency (BVD – Binenlandise Veiligheidsdienst) connived in allowing AQ Khan to steal nuclear secrets from URENCO, site at Almeto in Netherlands, only with the purpose of balancing stan with India in nuclear capability during the Cold War. It is through this kind of geopolitical balancing in various regions that the US maintains its lead role.Arvind Kejriwal is therefore not a political threat but a security threat to this country, his main objective being to destabilize India to perpetuate US agen
