Political parties have taken a stand as soon as the date of assembly elections in Punjab is announced. Apart from campaigning, the process of selection of candidates has also intensified. In this connection, Aam Aadmi Party’s convener and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal reached Mohali on Wednesday. During this, Aam Aadmi Party will definitely have to bear the loss due to Kejriwal contesting the farmers’ elections.
In a conversation with the media, Kejriwal said, “Aam Aadmi Party’s farmer leader Balbir Singh Rajewal was in talks for an alliance and Rajewal himself had also come to his house, but by then AAP had distributed tickets to 90 people in Punjab. And out of 117, 27 seats were left. In meeting with Kejriwal, Rajewal had demanded 60 tickets.
we won’t change tickets
AAP leader Kejriwal told Rajewal, “These 90 out of 90 are the children of you and the farmers and if we talk about the alliance, then you can take 10-15 seats out of the remaining seats, but the people to whom we have given tickets, They will not be replaced. Yes, I agree that it will definitely harm the Aam Aadmi Party in Punjab.
The alliance between the Congress and the Badal family, which has been going on for several decades, will now end. Happy days will now come for Punjab. Punjab model for the progress of Punjab. Press Conference | LIVE https://t.co/r6Qwk7Zq56
