Media persons ignored on visit of Shakeel Ahmed
Congress workers too kept waiting
Photographs floated through Emails without press note
Ferozepur 7, October: The media persons were compelled to keep their fingers crossed when Shakeel Ahmed, General Secretary, All India Congress Committee was kept away from them during his stop-over at Ferozpeur on way to Jalalabad to address the ‘Rosh Rally’.
Not only were two-three journalists allowed to have face-to-face with Shakeel Ahmed and Punjab Congress President Partap Singh Bajwa rather the Congress workers were also deprived of meeting the central and state leaders.
After waiting for hours together, the Congress workers left disappointed and frustrated, without meeting the leaders.
As per the information, Parminder Singh Pinki, local Congress MLA along with his supporters had gathered at Circuit House but the Congress leader showing his alertness took him to a nearby educational institution without known to anybody. It was kept so secret that few reporters already called there were allowed to meet the Congress leader. After that, he paid a flying visit to the circuit house where the Congress leaders were waiting and left for Jalalabad where he was to address the rally. The Congress workers were feeling cheated with these arrangements.
However, the photographs clicked at circuit house were floated without any press note.
