22 January, 2012 : “I can be expelled from the party but cannot be expelled from the hearts of people because I have been serving the people for the last 20 years and have owed my entire to them. Congress has not only thrown me out of the party but also has put the emotions of people to death”, said Deepinder singh Dhillon, independent candidate from Derra Bassi.
Deepinder Singh Dhillon expressed his feelings at Swami Enclave of Zirakpur, after Capatain amrinder Singh, President, Punjab Congress expelled him from the party. Addressing the huge gathering, dhillon said, “I have been serving the people of constituency for the last 20 years with sheer dedication. Along with the service, I earned the support for Congress party when no one wanted to contest for this constituency. I didn’t utter a single word even when I didn’t get the ticket from party during 2002 and 2007 elections. But during 2009 elections no one was ready to contest the elections after the death of Captain kanwaljit Singh. At that time party gave me the ticket and contested fearlessly. ”
Further he said that now the high command is threatening the party workers who have lend me support. But the party should remember that the people of derra Bassi are fighting for their rights. Every soldier in this war is fearless. So no one can be scared.
Dhillon said, “If the party would have given ticket to the candidate whom people love, then Captain Amrinder Singh would not have to come with the people of Rajpura, Amloh and Ghanaur.”
Today, Captain Amrinder Singh organized a rally at Zirakpur and on the other hand, deepinder Singh Dhillon addressed the masses at various villages. Besides Dhillon’s expulsion from the party, people lend him massive support.
