Joining of Congress leaders and party workers in such a large number clearly points out that the Congress party members are disappointed by the functioning of the party.

Advocate Hira Lal Kundra, President Block 11 Congress Committee who joined BJP today had worked for Congress for more than two decades. Kundra said, “Congress is not a political party with ethics and is a private company being administered by Congress leader Pawan Kumar Bansal, his family and his aides.”

He said Kamlesh, the Congress candidate was involved in numerous illegal activities was given a ticket for the upcoming MCC elections. Kundra said, “Congress party’s 11-member elections committee is mere a mirage to make the election process appear transparent whereas the selection process happens at Bansal’s house in sector 28.”

Kundra also brought to the notice that how Kamlesh, during her tenure, misused her position. He said, “During October 2012 till January 2014 almost 60 centres of the Samaj Kalyan Board were functional in Chandigarh but at the moment only 4 centers are operational. It is all because she used to pressurize the NGOs for her commission in the fund that was allotted to these NGOs by the government. Disgruntled with her such demands the NGOs surrendered and shut down the centers.”
