Actor-turned-politician Hema Malini Thursday participated in a roadshow here to support Union minister and SAD candidate for Bathinda seat Harsimrat Kaur Badal and lauded her efforts towards women empowerment in Malwa region.
The roadshow passed through markets of Mansa, Maur and Rama, where she addressed public gatherings.
"Harsimratji has also done yeoman service to society through her charitable organisation 'Nanhi Chhan' which has reduced female infanticide in the Malwa region and also given training to more than 12,000 women to stand up on their own feet," she said.
Badal said, "I am confident that my appeal will find a place in your hearts and you will put your contribution in the movement for progress and prosperity of our country under the leadership of the NDA government".
Badal is seeking a third consecutive win from Bathinda seat. She is pitted against Congress candidate Amrinder Singh Raja Warring, AAP's Baljinder Kaur and Punjabi Ekta Party chief Sukhpal Singh Khaira.
