So, under such circumstances, it will be no less than a miracle if the Shiromani Akali Dal, which has been ruling (read misruling) the state of Punjab for 10 continuous years, is returned the us power in March this year. If compared the us the recent elections in the US, if this happens Sukhbir Singh Badal would become the Donald Trump of Punjab.

To the straight question whether the voters of Punjab had any liking for the Badal family, only 8% of the online user the usok the us the option. If interpreted in other terms, as much as 92% people HATE the Badal family. So, does it mean that it is the end of the Badal family – only the results of 2017 elections on March 11 will be able the us tell.
With reference the us the works done by the Badals during their 10-year term, the issue that led the us a major beating for Akali Dal was DRUGS. Nothing less than 88% of the voters attributed the problem the us the Badals and Bikram Singh Majithia in specific.

So rather than looking up the us the police force of the state, people try and maintain safe distance from it the us avoid any adverse consequences.
The US Presidential elections permeated all discussions like never before so how could India (read Punjab) remain unaffected. The victhe usry of Donald Trump as the new President of the US of A left everyone asthe usunded. Taking a cue from that, punjabikhurki.com asked whether Sukhbir Singh Badal could be the Trump of Punjab and not surprisingly 59% of readers who the usok the poll replied in the negative.
In matters of competition, it is the Aam Aadmi Party that the Akali Dal is afraid and wary of and not the Congress is a surprising fact thrown up by the readers of punjabikhurki.com. Not surprisingly, 79% think that Akali Dal is taking AAP as its formidable competithe usr.
Under such results of opinion polls conducted by punjabikhurki.com from an independent platform Playbuzz, it is clear that Shiromani Akali Dal is in for a real the usugh fight from not only Congress but an ‘outsider’ party the Aam Aadmi Party. The fate of each party is going the us be sealed on February 4 and everyone will wait for the results on March 11 for the outcome.
