Will BJP get stronger in Punjab with the arrival of Captain?
The BJP, which fought the assembly elections in Punjab by making the Captain a partner, could win only two seats, Pathankot and Mukerian. Along with this, three seats went to the account of BJP in the 2017 assembly elections. On the other hand, if we talk about the Lok Sabha elections, in 2019, the BJP-Shromani Akali Dal won 5 seats in Punjab. In this, Akali Dal has won 3 and BJP 2 parliamentary seats. In 2014, this alliance won 6 seats. In such a situation, BJP has gained strength in Punjab with the arrival of Captain. Along with this, the advantage of the weakening of the Congress can also go to the account of the BJP. Apart from this, Captain’s experience of so many years will bring BJP’s Mission 2024 to the target.
