The Congress was clear against the AAP in Punjab due to these four reasons

With the seventh phase of voting in Uttar Pradesh on Monday, the road to assembly elections to be held in the country’s five major states is over. Along with Uttar Pradesh, assembly elections have been held in Uttarakhand, Goa, Manipur and Punjab. Of these, the assembly elections in Punjab were held on February 20. Here the Congress, Aam Aadmi Party, Punjab Lok Congress, Bahujan Sama Party and Akali Dal were playing in the election riots. If the exit polls are to be believed, then the Aam Aadmi Party government is being formed in Punjab. With this, it is seen that the ruling Congress party is completely clean of Punjab. According to the India Today-Axis My India exit poll, the Aam Aadmi Party wins 76-90 seats in Punjab, while the Congress has to fill only 19-31 seats. In the last assembly elections, the Congress won 77 seats out of 117, while the Aam Aadmi Party won 20 seats. This time the whole picture seems to have changed. If these polls turn into figures, then the CM’s face will definitely grace the head of AAP’s Bhagwant Mann.

This time, in the assembly elections held in Punjab, the Congress, Aam Aadmi Party, Bharatiya Janata Party, Shiromani Akali, Bahujan Samaj Party and Punjab Lok Congress Party were in the fray. Alongside this, some members of a leading peasant movement organization were contesting the elections under the banner of Samyukta Samaj Morcha. Looking at the opening table of the election, it seemed that Congress would take the lead in the fight. But over time the situation worsened. At the same time, AAP, which has been declared the face of Bhagwant Mann for efficient election management and CM position, continued to strengthen his position due to his strategies. On the other hand, the BJP, seeking a solid base for itself after splitting from Shiromani Akali Dal, entered the election season with Captain Amarinder Singh’s Punjab Lok Congress and Sukhdev Singh Dhindsa’s Shiromani Akali Dal (United). , which separated from Congress. But it doesn’t seem to be of much use to him. In exit polls, the BJP alliance appears to win 1-4 seats. On the other hand, Akali Dal appears to be shrinking by between 7 and 11 seats.

Along with this, if we talk about the percentage of votes, the Aam Aadmi Party is expected to get 41 percent of the votes in Punjab. At the same time, the ruling Congress gets 28 percent of the vote. The Bharatiya Janata Party is estimated to get only 7 percent of the vote. Seen this way, the Aam Aadmi Party appears to be unseating Congress from power. While in the last assembly elections, the Congress had won 62 of the 77 seats in Malwa and Majha. Here he seems to be suffering the greatest loss. AAP, who did their best in Malwa, did not even open their account with Majha. But this time his performance in both places is expected to be very good. The most important thing here is that Charanjit Singh Channi, who entered the Congress camp as the face of it, had to face opposition from great leaders like Navojat Singh Sidhu in the party itself. He was accused of corruption. In this way, Channi appears to be failing to maintain his credibility amidst the anti-incumbency wave. However, the real image will only be visible on March 10.

Let’s try to find out about those reasons, so the exit poll from Congress seems to be clear…

1. discord

“Hum toh aapne ne luta gairo mein kahan dum tha, my boat dubi jahan water hi low tha”… This Mirza Ghalib Sher was used in a song from the movie ‘Dilwale’. It simply means that the destroyer was present in the house itself, we keep looking outside. The same goes for the Congress in Punjab. With the announcement of the assembly elections, the position of the Congress in Punjab was very strong. When Charanjit Singh Channi was appointed CM after Captain Amarinder Singh left the group, he had improved the position of the group. At that time, the party chief in Punjab, Navjot Singh Sidhu, was also wholeheartedly engaged after Amarinder Singh’s departure. But in the meantime, the relationship between Sidhu and Channi soured. Sidhu resigned, which was not accepted by the higher command, but did not fulfill his dream of becoming a CM. During the election, Rahul Gandhi declared Channi as a CM candidate, after which Sidhu became angry. He although he did not say anything openly, but internally he stopped working for the party. In this way, due to the mutual struggle in the Congress party, the opponents had the opportunity to advance. In this, the Aam Aadmi Party has made the most of it. That he is now on his way to forming a government.

2. Accusations of corruption

The Enforcement Directorate raided the home of Punjab Chief Minister Charanjit Singh Channi’s nephew Bhupinder S. Honey and recovered millions of rupees, which were illegally earned, amid the hustle and bustle of the assembly elections. After Honey’s arrest, the ED feared that he had earned around Rs 3 crore through posting transfers. Aside from this, he has earned money through illegal sand mining. Apart from this, an amount of more than 10 million rupees has been recovered from Honey and his relatives. This case got Channi’s feet stuck in the mud. The opposition parties BJP, Akali Dal, Punjab Lok Congress Party and Aam Aadmi Party, etc. they fiercely surrounded Congress on this issue. Aam Aadmi Party National Coordinator Arvind Kejriwal said that during the 111-day rule, Charanjit Singh Channi has done wonders on corruption. It takes many people four or five years to commit corruption and they committed that much corruption in 111 days. This is very unfortunate, people are watching. Although Channi denied these accusations, these narratives are considered enough to tarnish the image in the elections. Along with this, when members of his own house attack, the boss becomes helpless. The same has happened with Channi.

3. Leadership apathy

The Congress in Punjab also had to be disappointed by the apathy of its central leadership. If she could see it, Channi had been completely alone in the election season. She was hoping for help from Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi. But Priyanka Gandhi was able to go to Punjab only a couple of times due to her complete focus on Uttar Pradesh. Once, in her presence, the controversial statement that Channi gave to the people of the UP, turned against the Congress itself. Rahul Gandhi was mostly seen doing virtual rallies only. When Navoj Singh Sidhu Channi was declared the face of the CM position, he sat back in anger. Along with this, the competition in his own seat was tough, so all of his focus remained on his seat instead of Punjab. In this way Channi fell alone and the Aam Aadmi Party took advantage of it. Kejriwal has been active during the elections.

4. Anti Ownership

Many times the anti-occupation wave rises up against the government of the day in the state. Because of this, the ruling party has to bear heavy losses in the elections. Sometimes the government leaves. The scope of anti-ownership sometimes ranges from CM to MLA. People get angry about government policies, so they look for their alternative. Many times the deputies in your area get angry with the legislators, so they demand a new candidate instead. This time, the Congress has also faced the fight against the incumbency in Punjab. Because in the five-year term, Congress has done nothing special for the state. Otherwise, there is an area of ​​50,362 square kilometers related to agriculture in Punjab. 42 lakh hectare is arable land. Even after this, governments have done nothing special for farmers so far. These political parties have always neglected the peasants who have the ability to bring the political parties to the throne of power. His anger was also among the peasants. There are a large number of farmers in Punjab. They have the ability to make and unmake the government.
