IN A major blow to the Opposition INDI bloc, Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) chief Arvind Kejriwal announced on Saturday that his party will contest alone all 14 Lok Sabha seats in Punjab and Chandigarh. Categorically signalling that there will be no alliance with the Congress in the State, Kejriwal said that the party will announce candidates for all 14 seats in the next 10-15 days. “I would like to seek your blessings on one more thing. In the next two months, the Lok Sabha elections are scheduled. In this election, Punjab has 13 seats and one in Chandigarh. In total, there are 14 seats.
In the next 10-15 days, the AAP will announce candidates for all the 14 seats. Just like you had supported us two years back, I would like to seek your blessings to let AAP win in all 14 seats by pressing on the ‘broom’,” Kejriwal urged people to vote for his party in the upcoming Lok Sabha polls. While launching Ghar Ghar Ration Scheme in Punjab’s Amloh, the AAP chief said, “Two years back, you gave us blessings. You gave 92 out of 117 seats to us (in Assembly polls), you created history in Punjab.”
