The downward polishing of ‘Aam Aadmi Party’ in the Punjab can be estimated by knowing these figures. Just a hundred days ago, the Aam Aadmi Party had achieved a record victory in the elections to the Punjab Assembly. Especially in Sangrur, which is the constituency of Punjab Prime Minister Bhagwant Mann, the Aam Aadmi party gained an advantage of more than four thousand votes in nine constituencies of the assembly and now the party has lost in the by-elections. Lok Sabha. The situation at ground level changed in such a way that in the constituency of the Sunam assembly, where Aman Arora of the AAP won by 75,000 votes, now the Aam Aadmi party got an advantage of only 1483 votes. Sangrur Lok Sabha constituency consists of nine constituencies of the assembly, which include Sangrur Urban, Dibra, Barnala, Bhadaur, Malerkotla, Dhuri, Mahilkalan, Lehragaga and Sunam. These areas are considered the stronghold of the “Aam Aadmi Party”.

Political analysts believe that the people of the Punjab had given the ‘Aam Aadmi Party’ a chance not because of its policy or the attractiveness of its leader, but as an alternative to Congress and the Akali Dal. The ‘Aam Aadmi Party’ had won votes in the name of a new kind of policy and methodology, but as soon as it came to power, this new kind of party seemed to be walking an even more orthodox path. Although many reasons can be counted for the paralysis of the newly born ‘Aam Aadmi Party’, but the most important reason was the image of Bhagwant Singh Mann becoming the ‘minister in chief of remote control’ who follows the Delhi team instructions. The people of the Punjab have begun to call Bhagwant Mann as the second Manmohan Singh, whose image had also become that of a puppet prime minister due to excessive interference from the high command of Congress. As soon as the Punjab government was formed, the chief minister of the “Aam Aadmi Party” Kejriwal convened a meeting of senior Punjab officials without the permission of the state government and in the absence of state leaders. The party covered him a lot, but this incident greatly hurt the image of Bhagwant Mann. Right now, in the by-elections of Sangrur Lok Sabha constituency, it was also seen that during the road show held during the campaign, where Kejriwal continued to campaign from the sunroof car while Bhagwant Mann was seen hanging from the window . This sent a message to people that Mann’s “value” is secondary to Kejriwal.

The “Aam Aadmi Party” came to power in the Punjab seeking votes on anti-drug and corruption issues, but as soon as the government was formed, these serious problems began to be taken as a joke. The Punjab government began claiming that the state had become free of corruption only by issuing an anti-corruption helpline number. The chief minister tried to rob his own health minister, Vijay Singla, alleging that he had been dismissed on corruption charges, but it was later found that if the audio of the alleged corruption of the health minister was made public, then the health of the Punjab government. it would be worse. go. Above all, the arrest of the Delhi Health Minister by the Executive Directorate has blown up the anti-corruption campaign of the “Aam Aadmi Party”. The condition of drug addicts is that ‘Udta Punjab’ has started filming, the sequence of deaths of young people due to overdose is increasing. The government has started talking about giving cheap liquor to the state with a new excise tax policy.

The biggest problem facing the Aam Aadmi Party government in Punjab is that of law and order. Despite the activity of the goonda elements in the state, the mistake of removing the safety of some prominent people and promoting it cost many lives, including the controversial singer Sidhu Musewala. Although the activism list of goonda elements in the state is very long, but the assassination of Moosewala became its symbol and the popularity of the “Aam Aadmi Party” has begun to decline in the form of a soda bottle boom.

Also in the economic sphere, the performance of the Aam Aadmi party was slow, as the broom party government, which had accused the governments of other parties of indebting the Punjab, had taken out a new loan of 9,000. billion in three months in the state. . Illegal mining in the state has increased rather than decreased, the prices of sand and gravel have multiplied by five. The construction sector as a whole has been affected by this. Interestingly, despite the severe economic crisis, the Aam Aadmi party government has lost 24.4 million rupees as water in its campaign in Gujarat, Himachal Pradesh, Haryana. The working style of Bhagwant Mann Sarkar and his ministers shows that the “Aam Aadmi Party”, which is doing a new kind of politics, is actually a symbol of the culture of the Congress that the country has been denying for the last few years. eight years.
