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.

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.
