संघर्ष पथ पर जो भी मिला, यह भी सही वह भी सही।
हरि नगर विधानसभा के सभी मतदाताओं का और सभी कार्यकर्ता मित्रों का हार्दिक धन्यवाद ।
ON February 7, exuding confidence, Bagga had said that there is no competition at all adding that the competition will be between AAP and Congress for number two and three. “BJP will win at least by a margin of 30,000 votes. AAP had no candidate to issue the ticket, due to which they brought a candidate just twenty hours back from Congress. Which is why the fight is between Congress and AAP for number two and three positions. BJP will win with a maximum number of seats”, said Bagga.
