“A band of fugitives, Arvind Kejriwal led Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) has made it evident that in wake of narrow political vested interests, they are harming the interests of Punjab.”
Brimming high on confidence, AAP contested on 432 seats out of 545 in the general elections held in 2014. Of all the candidates, only 18 could hold on to their security and whopping 414 AAP candidates from across the country lost their security deposit. When the entire country rejected AAP, Punjab was the only saving grace for being the only state from where the party won Loksabha seats.
Ever since then, the Aam Aadmi Party has been nurturing the dreams of winning Punjab assembly polls schedule early next year. But, in the absence of organization structure and political base, AAP is operating without clearly defined agenda for the overall development of the state and welfare of its people.
Wanting to win by hook or crook
The sole agenda of AAP is to rule Punjab by “hook or crook “ and just to satiate their lust for power; they are leaving no stone unturned to gain the sympathy of voters. From playing the dirty vote bank politics to shedding crocodile tears, Arvind Kejriwal has many cards up his sleeves and seems to be using these poll planks cleverly in Punjab.
Selling dreams in Punjab
In run-up to assembly polls in Delhi, Kejriwal promised moon to voters but delivered nothing. AAP’s 70-point agenda was filled with freebies and after one of its government, there is no headway to all the pre-poll promises. Kejrriwal is adopting the same strategy in Punjab and he is claiming to eradicate all the issues crippling the progress of state within a month of forming the government.
