Congress, which already faced an anti-titular factor in the Punjab, will have to wage a battle on three fronts – the resurgent AAP front, the BJP-Amarinder Singh and the Akali Dal-BSP fronts. The party that hoped to reap the dividends from the farmers’ unrest must rethink its strategy after the unions forged a political party in the state.
Congress, which is mired in internal wrangling in the state, will need to prepare for the Punjab polls. There may not be an easy walk in the Assembly polls as Congress thought after replacing Amarinder Singh as chief minister of state and appointing Charanjit Singh Channi to secure the votes. programmed castes, which are the highest in the country, but the recent questions of sacrilege and lynching have put the chief minister on the back.
The AAP won 14 of 35 seats in the Chandigarh municipal polls, the BJP won 12 seats, Congress won only eight seats and was pushed to third place, while the SAD won only ‘one seat.
