Slamming the opposition parties, Cheema said that Congress, Akali Dal and BJP leaders did cheap politics during the election campaign, made various false allegations against us and tried to defame us, but the people of Jalandhar rejected their propaganda and chose the Aam Aadmi Party’s politics of work.
He said that we were already confident that the people of Jalandhar would definitely elect AAP candidate Sushil Rinku and send him to the Lok Sabha with a huge margin victory. The entire Aam Aadmi Party leaders and workers are grateful to the people of Jalandhar for making AAP candidate win. We, on behalf of the Aam Aadmi Party, thank the people of Jalandhar from the bottom of our hearts for making the Aam Aadmi Party re-enter the Lok Sabha.
