Punjab election results: What did not work for AAP?


Chandigarh: The Aam Aadmi Party on Saturday witnessed a big defeat in Punjab. Why didn't AAP's Delhi magic didn't work in Punjab? The Congress is set for a comeback in Punjab after 10 years. The party is leading in over 70 seats. But the results strongly indicate that the Aam Aadmi Party's dreams of seizing its second state after Delhi are over.

Punjab election results: What did not work for AAP?

AAP is at the second spot, with the ruling Akali-BJP combine doing a little better than exit polls had predicted.

The AAP manifesto could also be the reason behind a great loss for the AAP. The party before the election, had promised to implement the 6th Pay Commission and regularising of contractual employees

The AAP launched a manifesto for government employees, promising to implement the 6th Pay Commission, besides assuring regularisation of contractual employees, if voted to power in the 2017 Punjab assembly polls.

Government employees in Punjab are an important part of the state machinery, therefore keeping in mind their demands, the party launched a manifesto that addresses their issues, AAP manifesto committee head Kanwar Sandhu said.

Now if a person goes through the Congress manifesto, it has promised to employment for youth and smart phones for youth, free education for girls, free textbooks to the students and to tackle the drug mafia issue as soon as it comes to prayer. However, after losing the polls in both in Punjab and Goa, the AAP party has decided to review the issues that let them down in Punjab.

Punjab AAP in-charge Sanjay Singh has taken to Twitter and had said that the results will prove wrong and AAP will remain unbeaten. The exit polls on Friday declared that Congress and AAP would go neck in neck.
