“We have silent voters, who will support us” If voted, will stay put around Buddha Nallah to resolve the issue of pollution

Ludhiana: Being declared as an AAP candidate for Ludhiana parliamentary seat was as surprising for 32-year-old Prof Tejpal Singh, as it was for a number of other contenders in the birthday celebration. He is locked in a contest with sitting Congress MP Ravneet Bittu, Punjab Democratic Alliance (PDA) candidate and Lok Insaf Party (LIP) birthday celebration leader Simarjit Singh Bains and Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) candidate Maheshinder Grewal. Son of an agriculturist, Tejpal, who at this time is state vice president of birthday celebration’s adolescence wing, is assured that his blank symbol and connect to adolescence will assist him win the seat for birthday celebration. An afternoon after his identify was announced, he spoke to TOI.
Was being named as birthday celebration’s candidate from Ludhiana a wonder?

It was definitely a wonder. I had now not even applied for it. However, our leaders Arvind Kejriwal and Bhagwant Mann confirmed their consider in me. They had been happy with my work as I have been associated with the birthday celebration for a long time and I'm grateful to them.

Last time in 2014 AAP had fielded senior leader and human rights activist H S Phoolka from Ludhiana as it’s candidate. Do you assume that you will be capable of match him?

H S Phoolka has performed a lot for Sikhs, primarily the ’84 rise up sufferers. There isn't any comparison between him and me, he's much senior than me. But he too should have began from someplace at my age. There isn't any age to do excellent and as a tender candidate I will do my best possible. I will encourage the adolescence to lift voice against what is occurring in the state and can take them along side me. I'm already getting great reaction from people together with the adolescence.

What in line with you is the most important factor in Ludhiana?

Pollution in Buddha Nullah is a big factor as people living at the tail finish are ingesting poison and suffering from health problems. I guarantee people that after wining MP elections I gained’t cross home however gets a tent rooted there or gets an accommodation close to Buddha Nallah and can stay there until this factor is resolved. We need to take business into self belief and search their assist to deal with the problems in order that people aren't made to drink poison.

You are fighting against applicants from Congress, SAD and PDA. What do you assume are your prospects of profitable the elections?

We are fighting to win and we will be able to installed our best possible efforts. I feel Bains brothers are confined to 2 constituencies and all they have got been doing is, exposing small time corruption to remain in the information. They don’t say the rest about CLU ‘rip-off’ in Ludhiana value 1000's of crores. So a ways because the Congress candidate and sitting MP Ravneet Bittu is concerned, I don’t see that he has carried out all the way through his tenure. I might have considered it a competition if SAD had fielded some youngster from Ludhiana as Maheshinder Grewal is an outdated birthday celebration member.

Do you find AAP’s toughen base receding?

I don’t assume so. Whenever other birthday celebration involves energy the citizens who're against it, turn silent. We have silent citizens who will toughen us.

But a number of AAP leaders in the district unit resigned just lately?

I don’t assume it is going to have any touching on birthday celebration’s electoral prospects. When a politician leaves a birthday celebration, people too depart him. They (who have left the birthday celebration) will come to find out about it after results are out.

Your father is an agriculturist and mother is a former instructor. You don't have any political background. What led you to politics?

I was student union president in my college in Sudhar in 2006. During 2014, AAP wave in Punjab, I joined birthday celebration as a volunteer as I wanted to do one thing for my state which is facing issues like unemployment, migration of stripling to in another country, corruption and drug abuse. Usually, people from political households enter politics and consider it as their industry, however I joined politics to convey the true alternate. As a adolescence, if we will be able to now not carry the problems related to our state then who else will? I have additionally been the adolescence president of Fatehgarh Sahib Lok Sabha constituency earlier than I was appointed as State vice president of the adolescence wing of the birthday celebration.
