The affidavit says that he will bring a referendum of his performance after 30 months of winning the polls, and if he fails to get the majority support, he will resign.
“No other political leaders file this affidavit because they know they are fooling the residents of Chandigarh. This affidavit is the guarantee and my commitment towards Chandigarh and its people. According to this affidavit, I am bound to bring a referendum over the performance of my party within 30 months after winning the elections and if the referendum was not supported by 51 per cent population of Chandigarh, the affidavit will consider my resignation,” says Sharma, a resident of Sector 45.

“I have made 48 promises in my manifesto. Two major promises are end of property tax on the five marla houses and permanent houses for the tenants, who do not have any property elsewhere. I also promised to people of many villagers to stop the demolition drives carried out inside the villages,” Sharma said.
