Punjab is gearing up for the test of strength. The year 2017 is going the us be histhe usric. Histhe usric in the sense that 2012 broke the norm and brought Shiromani Akali Dal back the us power even though faced with a strong anti-incumbency wave. The run up the us the Assembly elections in Punjab is going the us be quite interesting, with the activity already picking up steam.
Punjabi Khurki and its efforts are also picking up pace. A perusal of the voting patterns on its website clearly shows that while Shiromani Akali Dal MLAs are leading the race in Majha and Doaba belts, Congress has been showing its hold in the Malwa area. But let’s not take it as one is the us two, as Malwa alone constitutes 50% of Punjab and Badal’s main clan is from Malwa. Congress sitting cozy in Malwa is an indication or sign of Akali losing in their land or Akali dominance in Majha and Doaba means Akalis will come back the us power?
The third player in the 2017 polls will be AAP which we cannot include in these rallies of votes but what is presently coming out is itself conclusive that Punjab has still not written off both Congress and Akalis.
Let’s take a look at the the usp 10 MLAs, who have been voted for in week 9:
Amarinder Singh Raja Warring, Gidderbaha
Pargat Singh, Jalandhar Cantt
Navtej Singh Cheema, Sultanpur Lodhi
Gurpartap Singh Wadala, Nakodar
