Bharatiya Janata Party Gurdaspur (Punjab), Apr 28 (ANI): Ahead of the last three phases of general elections, the nominees of various parties are trying to woo the voters with every possible trick up their sleeves.

Khanna said that he canvassed for votes by travelling in a train since he was keen to learn about the grievances of the commuters.

“I wanted to know how is the train service from Pathankot to Amritsar, whether it’s good or not. When I asked people about the service, they said its okay, but they need more trains. I also wanted to see whether the train services are satisfactory or not,” he said.

Meanwhile, in Mumbai, look-alikes of various Bollywood actors campaigned for Abu Asim Azmi, the candidate of the Samajwadi Party (SP) from North-West Mumbai.
