Mohali, January 27 :The Sanyukt Samaj Morcha (SSM), led by Balbir Singh Rajewal, is all set to make its political debut in the Punjab Assembly elections 2022.
After a huge success of farmers' protests against the three farm laws, a few members of the Sanyukt Kisan Morcha joined hands to form a party (SSM) that they believe will compete with traditional parties and its way of governance.
Wednesday's (January 26) edition of one of the popular TV debate shows — Vichar Taqrar — hosted by PTC Editor Harpreet Singh Sahni — invited spokesperson for the Sanyukt Samaj Morcha Professor Manjeet Singh and Sanyukt Samaj Morcha candidate from Kharar Paramdeep Singh Baidwan to find out in what ways is their party different from any other and what vision do they have for the Punjab Assembly elections 2022.
“We advocate the issues of Punjab, issues that concern every common man of the state. Our manifesto is not framed sitting in an AC room; it has been prepared taking care of all sections that our society entails. Be it a farmer, trader, vendor, business or a labourer, we understand their needs like no other party” said Professor Manjeet Singh, spokesperson for the Sanyukt Samaj Morcha.
Speaking on the Aam Aadmi Party’s CM face, he said “Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal is using Bhagwant Mann. Even if the AAP wins the elections in Punjab, Bhagwant Mann’s status would be that of a dummy. Kejriwal is trying to tangle Delhi and Punjab weirdly. But culturally, historically and above all geographical, these two places do go along. There is a huge difference that Kejriwal is clearly not being able to comprehend”.
On being asked that where traditional parties are using all the possible ways to pursue their voters, and spending crores for the same how do will their party cope?
Sanyukt Samaj Morcha candidate from Kharar Paramdeep Singh Baidwan replied, “We have always stood by the truth. Whether it was farmers' protests, challenges from the Central Government – we gave our best. And people of Punjab will vote for us for the same reasons.”
