Fatehgarh Sahib. December 29, 2018: Though it is Congress versus Congress supporters in majority of the villages, but MLA Fatehgarh Sahib Kuljit Nagra is playing safe as he has visited only those village where Sarpanch and panch candidates have been elected unanimously and not canvassing for any of his supporters.
The keen contest is witnessed in nearby biggest village Jallah, where Devinder Singh brother of Youth Congress president Noni Jallah is contesting against the sister-in-law of Gursatinder Singh Jallah OSD to Bibi Bhatal and Secretary PPCC. Both claim to have the support of MLA Kuljit Nagra and have portrait the photograph of MLA. The voters are confused whom to support. MLA has not visited the village nor have extended direct or indirect support to any candidate. He said both are his supporters, how he can betray any of them, so he tried to make compromise but unfortunately could not succeed in various villages. It is beauty of democracy.
Meanwhile District administration has made all the arrangements for free and fair polling. Shiv Dular Singh Dhillon DC cum District Election officer said there are 367 polling booths and approximately 2000 employees have been put on duty.
