The Punjab Chief Minister, Bhagwant Mann, announced today that the Aam Aadmi Party will run an independent campaign in the province’s general election.
“Punjab will make history in 2024 when it will give AAP 13:0 win”. After chairing the Council of Ministers meeting this afternoon, Mann declared, “There will be no alliance with the Congress in the state.”
He, however, refused to talk of the future of the INDIA bloc if AAP was not to contest the elections with the Congress.
While senior party leader and MP Raghav Chadha had hinted last week that the AAP and the Congress would form a pre-poll alliance from Kashmir to Kanyakumari, Mann said the two parties would not run together in Punjab.
Mann said nearly 40 candidates (three per constituency) would be first selected and the best among them would be fielded in the polls.
