Aam Aadmi Party as Third Player in Punjab Politics

5 posts in this topic

One significant political outcome from AAP’s entry into Punjab politics as a key player is that the issue of Punjab politics being governed by Punjab politicians and not Delhi-based centralised leaders has acquired importance like never before.

Interesting how nearly all polls had AAP at around 60% and the result was congress at 60%

There can be a number of reasons why punjabis voted for Congress.

1. SYL

2. Congress is pro business. AAP tried to control corruption in govt offices but "Chor-Baeemaan can't change there nature of accepting n giving bribes" result corruption is still there amount of bribe has gone up 10 times in Delhi. Punjabis don't want that to happen in Punjab.

3. Akalis knew they were going to loose so they told workers to support Congress secure a win in constituencies other than top bosses.

4. Punjabis don't trust outsiders they voted for local leaders rather than Jarnail Singh shoe thrower.

5. 1984 is not an issue is present Punjab, Mr Phoolka should work on current problems if he wants to win an election.

6. Kejriwal didn't invite a Sardar into his cabinet in Delhi and hopes to rule Sardar heart land is childish.

    • Thank you everybody, but I still feel sad, not because I didn't get what I wanted but I feel sad with mahraj ji. what I wanted was to pass a test that ive been trying so hard for, I have done path too especially dedicated to this and ardas and on the day I even took a cyber hukamnama and it was really positive cant remember it exactly, it was something like waheguru ji gives you what you wish for (I just read the translations).... and today I was awake at amrit vela but I didn't get up to do my nitnem I stayed in bed and did simran, I just wanted to show mahraj ji that I am upset with him a little bit, just as I would do to show my mum ...... I don't know if gods feeling anything  or just doesn't care lol
    • there is a lot of iron in dal and beans especially BLACK BEANS   if you want to learn indian cooking  watch Sanjay on VAHREHVAH.COM   ...food always turns out great and he is a bit enthuastic . Recommend watching the following channels to get more info : mic.the Vegan (gives the science papers) John McDougall (Doctor - starch solution) Vegsource (all the plant based docs and info) Vegan style cooking (aussie lady showing various dishes )   Interesting for health topics : Diverse Health Services Dr John Bergman   
    • It doesn't matter where I come from just presenting Desi parents sentiment. If you're parents are conservative & traditional then it's best to follow definition of RIGHT. And who says there is no romance in Arranged Marriage now you want couples to talk about their intimate relation in public  Unless you get married there can be no "Ek jot duwe murti" so get married n discover it yourself !
    • Don't forget that Hindus make up over 40 percent of Punjab so the 1.6 will include their birth rate.  If Sikhs have 3.1, it means that Hindu Punjabi may be in demographic decline and that is making the replacement rates look lower for Sikhs. If there has been an increase in the population in Punjab, it would be non Punjabis coming into Punjab. Perhaps this is why the Indian Govt has been encouraging Bhaiyas and Biharis to move to Punjab over the last couple of decades. The Hindu Punjabi population has been in decline and the govt needs to keep the ratio up. These are just suggestions and are by no means accurate. What is interesting on that link you provided is that as a general rule most of India's birth rate is going down with the exception of the BIMRU states.
    • Grehasti means married life ? Are you saying get married & refrain from sex  or not marry n stay with parents ?
