Ferozepur:Most of the contests in Ferozepur and Fazilka are going to be multi-cornered contests as apart from the traditional parties, the Rai Sikh community has decided to field its candidates in Guruharsahai, Jalalabad and Ferozepur urban constituencies, as was decided in the meeting of the community on Sunday.
In Sunday’s meeting, representatives of the All India Rai Sikh Mahatam Sirkiband Association, AIRMSU (student wing), AIRMS youth wing and Rai Sikh Samaj Sudahr Sabha gathered in Mamdot and after discussion, they decided to teach a lesson to all the political parties for not giving enough share to the community even as the community has decisive votes in 27 constituencies of Punjab.
In the meeting on Sunday, the representatives of the community decided to vote in favour of the candidates rather than the parties.
It had been decided to vote for community’s candidates Mohan Singh Phalian Wala in Ferozepur Rural constituency and Ghubaya family in Fazilka constituency whereas in the Ferozepur urban, Guruharsahai and Jalalabad the community will field its own independent candidates and support them to win.
The names of the candidates will be declared next week after some more meetings of the community.
Briefing about the meeting, a spokesman of the community Hansa Singh Kalu Arain said that community would do its best to win all the five seats for the community so that in future the political parties would think to give proper number of candidates to the community.
It is to be mentioned here that the community has a large number of voters in five constituencies of Ferozepur and Guruharsahai and if the community fields its candidates in the field, then it can damage the calculations of major candidates of the area.
