Chandigarh (Punjab): Even corrupt people like Congress candidate Pawan Kumar Bansal ‘can have confidence but that does not mean they will win,’ said veteran actor Anupam Kher on Sunday after casting his vote.
“Even the corrupt people can have confidence, they (Pawan Bansal and party) rely on their corruption while the honest ones rely on their honesty. Doesn’t mean they will win,” Kher said talking to reporters here.
He also said he is feeling a major shift had come in the mood of the nation in the ongoing elections with people actively supporting the development done by the BJP and supporting candidates beyond the boundaries of caste and religion.
“People all across India are looking for a kind of leaders who can bring their dreams to life. This is true for Chandigarh, in Punjab and the rest of the country. Development is the agenda in this election while caste, creed and religion have fortunately taken a backseat and this is a great sign,” he added.
Kher’s wife and BJP MP Kirron Kher is contesting against Pawan Kumar Bansal of Congress from Chandigarh constituency.
A total of 918 candidates, including Prime Minister Narendra Modi, are in the fray in this last phase of the Lok Sabha polls. Polling began on Sunday in 59 seats spread across seven states and one Union Territory. The counting of votes will begin on May 23.
