Amritsar: A day ahead of polling in Amritsar Lok Sabha seat, senior BJP leader Arun Jaitley today expressed confidence that his issue-centric campaign will succeed against the “rude and discourteous” campaign of his Congress rival Amarinder Singh.
“I was faced with the campaign by Congress which has run out of ideas. Amarinder Singh decided to deal with me the way he has dealt with Akali Dal through his career - be rude, discourteous and fabricate allegations - something will stick.
“Unfortunately for him he was dealing with a different kind of campaign. My campaign was issue centric both at the national level and region of Amritsar.
I was able to get back at him, politely but firmly. A lumpen campaign strategy of the Captain (Amarinder) was hardly likely to succeed against me,” Jaitley wrote on his blog.
Besides Amarinder, Jaitley also accused prominent Congress leaders such as P Chidambaram, Kapil Sibal, Manish Tewari, Jairam Ramesh, Anand Sharma and Beni Prasad Verma of being rude and discourteous in their effort to “demolish” Modi's popularity among the people of the country.
