Aam Aadmi Party put an impressive show in Punjab

By on May 16, 2014


The Aam Aadmi Party was completely decimated from Delhi but will definitely win 4 seats in Punjab. The AAP has done reasonably well for a party that is barely a year and a half old. In Delhi, the party vote share has increased from 29% in Assembly elections in December 2013 to 34 % today. The best part is that AAP is now the second largest party in all constituencies, placing Congress in the third position. The vote share appeared to be 3.5% per cent for the AAP in the country. It’s just a matter of time for voters to watch a direct battle between AAP and BJP in the national and the state level.

The party has left no stone unturned to put an impressive show in Lok Sabha Elections 2014 but failed to do so as the AAP doesn’t have large amount of funds and is lacking in experience in comparison to Congress and BJP.

The party has become famous among people who use facebook, twitter, and newspaper, but in India’s backward areas AAP is not very common. Most of the AAP candidates have no experience in politics. People were skeptical to support AAP due to these drawbacks.

Despite all these drawbacks, the people of India need to stand up and applaud Mr. Kejriwal for showing courage and determination to fight against BJP Prime Ministerial’s candidate Narendra Modi.

Though Narendra Modi won from Varanasi in Uttar Pradesh with a landslides victory, Arvind Kejriwal made his presence felt in every nook and corner of the country.

AAP put an impressive show in Punjab. AAP is leading on two seats – Faridkot and Patiala while won two seats from Sangrur and Fatehgarh Sahib.

The AAP candidate and Punjab comedian Bhagwant Mann registered a massive win from the Sangrur constituency in Punjab. He has defeated Shiromani Akali Dal’s Sukhdev Singh Dhindsa in Sangrur.

AAP candidate Prof Sadhu Singh too is leading by a comfortable margin of over 85,000 votes against SAD’s Paramjeet Kaur Gulshan from Faridkot, while Dr Dharam Vira Gandhi is leading from Patiala constituency.

AAP candidate Harinder Singh Khalsa sweeps Fatehgarh Sahib seat against the Congress rival and sitting MLA Sadhu Singh by over 55,000 votes.

Meanwhile, Arvind Kejriwal said “I congratulate Mr. Modi for winning from here (Varanasi). Thank all those who voted for me & also those who didn’t. I am disappointed with the party’s performance in New Delhi but was happy with the result in Punjab.”
