In a public meeting held in Ellenabad, under huge Anaj Mandi sheds, packed to brim, Congress Leader of this region, S. Malkiat Singh Khosa staked his claim for the Congress Ticket from this assembly.
Addressing the gathering, Mr. Khosa said that today’s seminar of Congress workers has turned into a huge public meeting (Jan Sabha) thus justifying his claim for allotment of Congress ticket from this constituency.
He said that given a chance to contest elections from Ellenabad, he was sure to win and thereafter he shall strive hard to work for this constituency which had been an area of great neglect on all fronts since last several decades. Talking to newsmen after the Public Meeting Mr. Khosa said that he shall not discriminate anyone for his position or affinity to any party, and shall try to bring educational institutions, an ITI, a Polytechnic College, etc to Ellenabad and shall also impress upon the Government to create a Special Economic Zone (SEZ) in this region as the area is industrially very backward.
“Policies of PM Manmohan Singh, AICC President Sonia Gandhi and development works of CM Haryana Mr BS Hooda, in last 5 years, have instilled such confidence in electorate that there is no sign of Anti incumbency in Haryana anywhere” added Mr. Khosa.
This constituency now in General Category had been a reserved (SC) category constituency before delimitation and had been a stronghold of Indian National Lok Dal (INLD) in the past.
