Punjab Elections : Kejriwal Resorts To ‘Bitching’ About Competitors

AAP national convenor and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Sunday mounted a no holds barred attack on the Badal family and Punjab Congress chief Amarinder Singh, alleging that they have “looted” the state for their “vested interests”

The writing on the wall is clear for the ruling Akali Dal. They need to handle the challenge from the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) effectively. The latter is still an unknown quantity in the state’s politics in terms of its potential to challenge established parties, but the surge in popular support for Kejriwal makes it look like a threat.

To add to this, Arvind Kejriwal is adding increasingly new “feathers” to his hat. Not only has he claimed to leave the state of Punjab after he revolutionizes the current situation but has also stirred up a strange political environment in the state.

However, all this does not mean to assert that the AAP is headed for a cakewalk in Punjab. In one of his rallies a few months back, Kejriwal claimed his party would win 110 of the 117 seats in the state. The ground situation, particularly on the organisational front, does not reflect that sense of optimism. Some seats, even many seats less would still mean that Kejriwal’s party has arrived as a political force. The man himself might be lacklustre enough to not be able to pull off a few promise, albeit, the premise made during the Delhi elections.
