Ambala Cantt: Star campaigners are seen as adding colour to the poll campaign of political parties during election season. Even though Assembly elections are more about the presence of the local leaders, many parties have been relying on their star campaigners, especially the Bharatiya Janata Party.
Like the Lok Sabha elections, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has been the face of the BJP in Assembly elections too. He has visited many areas like Karnal, Faridabad and Hisar.
However, Ambala Cantt has been untouched by BJP star campaigners.
Ambala Cantt BJP MLA Anil Viz, who has been doing it all for himself, campaigning from 8 am to even 12 midnight on days, says he on his own is a star campaigner. "I'm myself a star campaigner," said Viz on being asked about the absence of the BJP's big names from Ambala Cantt.
While star campaigners like Hema Malini have visited the Ambala City constituency, questions are being raised on why no big leader has been seen in Ambala Cantt. "There have been no differences in the party. I am being able to manage things here on my own," Viz said.
However, locals do believe that if Modi visits Ambala Cantt, it will help the BJP get an upper hand.
