Pawan Kajal should step down on moral grounds: BJP

Kangra, May 24 (UNI) BJP on Friday demanded Pawan Kumar Kajal of Congress, who lost to BJP's Kishen Kapoor in the Lok Saba polls from Kangra-Chamba LS seat by the highest margin of 4,77,623 votes, to resign as MLA from the Legislative Assembly representing Kangra on moral grounds, as he has lost the mandate of people of Kangra.
Executive member of BJP Other Backward Classes National Morcha Birender Chaudhary told UNI here that Mr Kajal has trailed behind in his own Assembly segment by a margin of 23,582 votes, which was major indicator that he had lost the support of people in his Kangra constituency, so he should step down.
Stating that the margin of his defeat was highest in the state and third in the country, the BJP leader said Mr Kajal must realise that people are accepting the policies and developmental vision of Narendra Modi-led government and thus, NDA has got 349 seats, which was a writing on the wall that Congress has lost its credibility among the common people.
There is no row at position 0.
