Not Ex-Ally SAD However Amarinder on Punjab BJP’s Thoughts as Farm Legal guidelines Repeal Opens Up Pre-Ballot Potentialities

The Punjab BJP is ruling out the possibility of returning to its former alliance partner, the Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD), and instead prefers a connection with former Congress Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh for the upcoming state elections, says the party’s head of state Ashwani Sharma.

The announcement to repeal Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s three controversial farm laws has opened up interesting political opportunities in the state of Alliance.

However, the head of the state unit vehemently denies a return to an alliance with the SAD. Speaking to News18.com, Sharma said, “An alliance is an equal partnership, but SAD fought 84 percent of the seats last time around and BJP chose to stay second fiddle in the alliance because it was in favor of Punjab. But we see no way of returning to this alliance. “

Sharma says the announcement of the repeal of the farm laws will allow great leaders to operate in a more conducive environment. “On the first floor, it was not difficult for the party workers to move. The big names and well-known leaders have faced the heat, ”Sharma said.

He said local BJP staff had moved to work for people during their troubled times, especially during the pandemic. “The party workers have run programs at the district level and there have been responses,” Sharma said. He said that with the prime minister’s decision, the BJP will now begin to work towards implementing larger programs.

“I have been assigned 117 assembly seats (the strength of the Punjab assembly) and I am working towards that,” Sharma said. He said the BJP is not a party for a family where the family makes decisions, there is a parliamentary committee that will make the decision which he believes will be made in favor of the party workers and the people of Punjab.

Regarding the possibility of an alliance with Captain Amarinder Singh, he said: “Captain Saab has an attraction in the urban areas and he has expressed his willingness to work on an alliance with the BJP.”

Sharma said it was up to the BJP leadership to think about the strategy and how to proceed. “At the grassroots, it’s about strengthening the party base, ensuring adequate outreach programs by the party and being able to use the ongoing power struggle in the ruling Congress,” said Sharma.

He said Congress was in disarray, the power struggle between the two top leaders was open and people in Punjab were watching false promises made by the prime minister.
