The AAP Punjab has been boasting of fielding the tyros against rival stalwarts to hit the headlines. The party has been announcing the novices against the veteran rival politicians. It’s the first assembly election of AAP and the party is overconfident.
The drunkard parliamentarian Bhagwant Mann has been claiming that he would contest from Jalalabad constituency. Mann told that he would contest against Sukhbir Singh Badal. The Sangrur MP has failed to serve the people of his constituency and boasting of contesting election against the Deputy Chief Minister.
It seems that Bhagwant Mann trying to be in the lime light of media. Though he is pulling crowd in his rallied but the people are only interested in his jokes. A resident of Jandiala village told that he is least bother to hear political speech of Mann but he goes to hear only jokes.
The political experts saying that pulling crowd is different and winning the election is difficult. They commented that there were leaders in Punjab who were the excellent crowd pullers but they failed in the elections.
Capt Amarinder Singh had formed his own party SAD Panthik but the party had lost the elections in 1997. Even Amarinder’s security deposit was forfeited at that time.
AAP has announced Himmat Singh Shergill from Majitha constituency. What is the big deal to announce such a new entrant in politics from Majitha seat? Shergill had joined AAP after the general elections and the party claiming that he would give a tough fight to the incumbent MLA Bikram Singh Majitha.
Interestingly, the party fielded Jarnail Singh from Lambi constituency. Jarnail Singh is the sitting MLA in Delhi assembly. Instead of focusing on Delhi, he will contest election from Lambi seat. The Chief Minister of Punjab contest election from Lambi seat. If we compare at the political stature of both, obviously Jarnail Singh is nowhere in front of octogenarian CM.
AAP has been deliberately trying to hit the headlines by announcing the political greenhorns against the prominent rival politicians.
