Poll campaigning in Mohali yet to pick up the pace

Mohali: Even as the Election Commission (EC) has announced the date for the Assembly poll in the state, the campaigning is yet to pick up pace as except for AAP in Mohali, other parties, especially the BJP-Alliance, SAD-BSP and individual candidates have not even announced their candidates or candidature as yet. Even voters are still silent and not ready to disclose their preferences regarding a party or candidate openly.
Political observers state that the picture would be clear after all the parties announce their candidates, though voters generally do have a preference, personal liking or disliking for a particular candidate may impact the results in a constituency.
This time, the election results are expected to be interesting and baffling. With too many candidates trying their luck in the elections, it would have to be seen who cuts into whose vote bank and who gets benefited from it.
AAP is the only political party till date which has announced candidate to contest from Mohali SAS Nagar Constituency as Kulwant Singh and Former Health Minister MLA Balbir Singh Sidhu is confident to be the congress candidate, though official announcement is still awaited. SAD-BSP alliance, BJP- Alliance and other too are yet to announce the candidates.
In 2017, Congress candidate Former Health Minister MLA Balbir Singh Sidhu has emerged as a winner for third time.
AAP Candidate Kulwant Singh has been confined to the Corporation or council elections.
It is pertinent to mention about the rumours of the Congress not repeating its candidates as a few of MLAs are facing anti-incumbency, it might become difficult for the high command to pacify dissidents.
On the other hand, the AAP has its popularity among lower and middle-income groups, who have disenchanted with the traditional parties, could help it garner a huge share of votes.

Revolt in Punjab AAP Punjab over giving tickets to wrong people

Chandigarh: AAP leaders revolted against the party convener and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal for choosing the wrong people for tickets for the upcoming Punjab Assembly elections.
“It is being done at the behest of Delhi Chief Minister and AAP convener Arvind Kejriwal, tickets are being sold to turncoats for crores of rupees. It exposes the hypocrisy of AAP National convenor Arvind Kejriwal,” alleged Gurtej Singh Pannu, AAP youth wing president, Mohali district today while addressing media.
“We have a list of 56 assembly constituencies where political leaders who joined AAP from parties like Congress and Akali Dal were given tickets in just 1-2 days of their joining at the cost of dedicated party workers who have given their blood and sweat to the party. That money power is ruling the roost in ticket distribution is clear from the example of Mohali where a realtor was given the ticket after he switched over to AAP why are the hard-working party workers ignored in Mohali and other places?” Pannu questioned.
Pannu was accompanied by Sheera Bhanboura, Vice President (Youth) AAP, Punjab, and Morha Singh Anjaan, Founder Member AAP, Punjab.
Arvind Kejriwal and Raghav Chadha are out to ruin AAP in Punjab. Tickets are being given to people not committed to the party’s ideology, those who uphold the principle of the party are being denied tickets. Anyone can buy the AAP ticket in Punjab if he or she has the paying capacity, dedicated party workers are being taken for a ride added Sheera Bhanboura.
