This is what Chandigarh’s daughter did today – 28th March 2014

This is what Chandigarh’s daughter did today:

The Aam Aadmi Party’s candidate for the Lok Sabha elections from Chandigarh – Gulkirat Kaur Panag began her day at 7:30AM, with a door to door Yatra, interacting with the residents of Vikas Nagar.
While interacting with residents, Gul forcefully stated that “the villages of Chandigarh have been neglected and their development has seriously suffered at the hand of professional politicians.” Gul added that the development of villages and colonies will be her top priority with her 3 focal points being of healthcare, education and sanitation.

Thereafter, Gulkirat Kaur Panag along with the other candidates Mrs. Kirror Kher and a representative from Mr. Bansal’s side went to meet the Chandigarh Confedration Of Workers and Employees in sector 19-D. Around 10,000 workers had gathered to address two important issues with the candidates, 1-What steps shall be taken for the regularization of Contractual Employees employed against Sanctioned and Permanent vacancies for the last 3-5 years in Chandigarh, and 2-Whether the candidate’s party has included the agenda of welfare and equality to improve service conditions of the contractual, outsourcing and other low paid workers in the manifesto?

Fully cognizant of their grievances, Gulkirat Kaur Panag pointed out that, “Chandigarh needs to follow a uniform policy, which is either the Punjab policy or the National policy, as this will help in the welfare of the workers and employees of the Chandigarh Union Territory. It is imperative that service conditions be just and equitable, and employee welfare is given due priority”. Gul also stated that it is essential for workers and employees to receive equal wages for an equal amount of hours spent working.

Post the conference, Gulkirat Kaur Panag’s next campaign stop for the day was Kaimbala village. At the Nukkad Sabha, Gul met with local villagers and the Sarpanch of the village, to discuss the grievances and shortcomings in the village in depth. Gul reiterated her stand for the development of villages into model townships while also addressing the issue of the urgent need to review the Lal Dora of Chandigarh’s villages. Gul highlighted to the residents that “Mr Pawan Kumar Bansal has a lot to answer them for the appalling state of affairs in the villages that have subsisted during his 15 year tenure as Chandigarh’s member of parliament.”

The evening saw Gulkirat Kaur Panag meet and interact with residents in Shastri Market, in Sector-22. Gul spoke to residents about the need for participative governance and an effective Swaraj model, where government services are made available to citizens as a matter of right and entitlement. Gul further said that, “The people of Chandigarh shouldn’t have to run from door to door, pillar to post, to have their most basic demands met. The system stood should function with proper checks and balances over the discretionary powers vested with authorities”.

Gulkirat Kaur Panag ended her day with a debate held by the Hindustan Times and a Yatra covering sectors 49, Attawa and Kajheri.
