Prof. Kuldip began with an illustration of how the state of Punjab has been a witness to various agitations over the years and the nature of Punjab electoral politics can be assessed from those agitations. He explained post militancy period politics were reflective of how terrorism ended in the State.
But now with the end of terrorism, Prof. Kuldip argued that there is a new paradigm of politics where Akali Dal has moved away from ethnic politics of militancy era to moderation in perspective. It has come into coalition with BJP to win over non Sikh votes. He also said that developments in the context of Covid 19 will determine the Punjab politics and Punjab Congress may have a better chance of electoral win in the future due to its regional strength inspite of the influence of Congress High Command and proactive role played by Capt. Amarinder Singh's proactive role as the State CM.
