Harish Rawat Predicts Massive Victory for Bansal

By Tricitynews
Chandigarh 22nd April, 2019:- Congress star campaigner Harish Rawat on Sunday predicted a massive victory for party Lok Sabha candidate from Chandigarh Pawan Kumar Bansal. Saying he had brought blessings of Kedarnath, Badrinath and Hemkunt Sahib for the four-time MP, he said as Union Water Resources Minister Bansal had done a good turn for Uttarakhand by sanctioning three major multipurpose hydel projects for Uttarakhand at major cost to the central government.
Addressing a massive gathering, organised by Uttarakhand Cell of Chandigarh Congress at Ramleela grounds in Sector 43, the AICC General  Secretary incharge of two North-Eastern states and former Uttarakhand Chief Minister appealed to the people to send Bansal to the Parliament again with a big margin and bring Congress back to power at the Centre to finish five-years of BJP misrule.
Taking a dig at the BJP and Prime Minister Narendra Modi for testing the people with their own “mann ki baat”, he said that the Congress on the other hand was interested more in listening to the common man’s “mann ki baat”.
Dwelling on the Congress manifesto released by party President Rahul Gandhi, he said that the revolutionary NYAY scheme will prove to be a game-changer in uplifting the fortunes of 5 crore families and 25 crore people by ensuring a minimum monthly income of Rs 12,000. He said the Congress will come good on its promise of reserving 33% seats for women in the vidhan sabhas and the Lok Sabha and write off farm loans within 30 days of coming to power.
Lashing out at the spiralling prices of petrol, diesel and other essential commodities, Rawat said the BJP had added to the woes of all sections of the people while helping a handful of influential families to proper beyond proportions. Instead of fulfilling its promise of providing two crore jobs a year, the government during its five years had in fact added another eight crore people to the BPL list.
In his speech, Pawan Bansal, while reeling out a long list of failures of the BJP both at the Centre and in Chandigarh, said that while Chandigarh was always smarter than the smart cities, it had plummeted in Swachh Bharat and Smart cities rankings, because of the complete neglect and mismanagement during the last five-years.
On an appeal from State Congress President Pardeep Chhabra the crowds raised their hands in acknowledgement that they will not only convince people in their areas of influence within the city but also in adjoining areas to vote for the party.
Among other local party leaders present were Subhash Chawla, Harmohinder Singh Lucky, Gurpreet Singh Gabi, Devinder Babla, Bhupinder Singh Badheri, Gurbax Rawat and Barinder Singh Rawat.

3 Roles Pankaj Tripathi Played to Perfection on Applause

By Tricitynews
Chandigarh 22nd April, 2019:- The versatility observed in his performances has earned him a solid reputation and has left a mark for the most of us. Give him any role and we know he will ace it to perfection. Be it unconventional roles or seemingly quintessential characters, he has, with full dexterity, managed to give stellar hits. Here we unravel the absolute most fascinating characters Pankaj Tripathi played on OTT screens.
 Madhav Mishra in Criminal Justice - A crime cum prison drama, won Tripathi buckets of critical acclaim. For Madhav Mishra, who takes up Aditya’s case, it is a case clearly out of his league. In this series, Pankaj plays a struggling lawyer, who is fighting a battle for survival.This role lets him unleash his natural self as he portrays this character effortlessly. Be it his nuances, mannerisms or the way he delivers lines, it's hard to not be in awe of him.
 Kaleen Bhaiya in Mirzapur–The series brings alive the gang war and the earthy culture of Uttar Pradesh and Bihar. It revolves around Pankaj Tripathi's iron-fisted character who is a mafia don of Mirzapur. The plot snowballs into a round of progression, aspiration, power and avarice, the whole texture of this untamed city gets undermined. Mysterious, intimidating and ruthless, Kaleen Bhaiya is one such character that the audiences would love to hate in the series
 Kehri Singh of Gurgaon–A movie that showcased Pankaj Tripathi's innate talent was Gurgaon. At the very basic it is an account of a broken family sibling rivalry in the tradition of Indian cinema. Pankaj Tripathi conveys a tasteful act as a control crack who neglects things to keep his brood together.
