Punjab congress suffered a big setback

Punjab congress has suffered a severe setback in the recent past. Former PPCC president Sunil Jakhar has joined BJP. He is the son of Late Balram Jakhar who was once Speaker of Lok Sabha. He is a soft spoken leader. His new joining will definitely going to change political scenario in the Malwa Belt. He has a great basis at the ground level. The BJP was also searching for a Hindu face in the Malwa belt. It is hoped that now Sunil Jakhar will fulfill political aspirations of the party in the Malwa belt. Rather, the political impact will be shown in the whole state in the coming times. Punjab Congress has also suffered a major setback as the former PPCC president Navjot Singh Sidhu has been imprisoned for one year in an old case. Whatever may be the things, it is a hard fact that Sidhu is a good orator and he fully knew the mechanism of how to manipulate political scenario with his spoken words. Earlier, former chief minister Punjab Capt Amarinder Singh and some other senior Congress leaders have left the party. In the present scenario, it will be very tough for the Congress to perform better in the coming elections to the municipal corporations and the parliament. Now, the whole responsibility of the party lies on the shoulders of the party’s state president Raja Amrinder Singh Warring. The time has come when he and his team has to show their ability on their own.

Alarming situation for Punjab’s senior BJP leadership 
The new entrants from other political parties in BJP Punjab is an alarming situation for the party’s senior leaders who are either sidelined or isolated at present. There was a time when these sidelined and isolated leaders were standing like a rock with the party in the past. These leaders were given many temptations by various political parties but they always remained loyal to their mother party BJP. It is a matter of great surprise that why the security of the senior BJP leaders have either been removed or reduced who fought against militancy to keep the India’s unity and integrity intact. The Union Ministry of Home Affairs should take this matter seriously and review the security arrangements of senior BJP leaders and the security personnel be increased keeping in mind the current prevailing law and order situation in Punjab. There is a feeling among the leadership of BJP that if the party is liberal to all political leaders of various political parties to join it then the central leadership should also review the comeback of all those party leaders who had left it and be given a chance to join once again without any prejudice.


Punjab BJP men looking at central leadership 
BJP senior leadership is visiting Punjab to and fro and holding series of meetings. Presently, the senior leaders are visiting Ludhiana. They should also prefer to visit other cities also and conduct series of meetings with the party workers and listen to their grievances and suggestions before dictating them their views of strengthening the organizational structure. The party workers are the real assets of an organizational structure. Until and unless the senior BJP leaders once make direct dialogue with the cadre at grass root level especially in Punjab BJP till then the party high command cannot conclude to future root map of victory in coming municipal corporation and parliament elections.  

Punjab CM Bhagwant Mann’s quick decisions 
Punjab CM Bhagwant Mann is leaving no stone unturned in taking quick decisions for every section of the society including farmers, and unemployed youth. The political pundits say that the performance of the AAP government in Punjab will ultimately reflect on the coming assembly elections in Himachal Pradesh and Gujarat. There is a strong feeling that Bhagwant Mann should also find out a new mechanism to generate and increase revenue of the state exchequer.
SAD(B) strengthening organizational structure 
Shiromani Akali Dal (Badal) is still concentrating on strengthening the organizational structure especially in the urban areas, keeping in mind the coming municipal corporations elections and byelection to Lok Sabha from Sangrur.
