With parliamentary polls imminent, the Aam Aadmi Party’s (AAP) top leadership is working hard to secure a win. The elections are a critical test of its popularity in Punjab, where it is in power.

Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann and senior leader and Rajya Sabha MP Sandeep Pathak have been meeting party leaders and workers in different constituencies. On April 6, leaders are slated to meet volunteers as part of a ‘Volunteers Milni’ event to build momentum in the run-up to the polls.

The event is to be held in Moga and Phagwara Mann where deliberations would be held with volunteers. On Friday, Mr. Mann held meetings with AAP candidates and MLAs from Anandpur Sahib and Amritsar, and received feedback from all the MLAs in these constituencies and discussed election strategy based on that feedback.

The election for the 13 Lok Sabha seats in Punjab will be held on June 1, and Mr. Mann, who is leading the election campaign has been asserting that the party will win all the 13 seats in Punjab. The AAP is seeking votes on its performance and policies in the State. By fielding five ministers, the party is putting the standing and prestige of the Chief Minister to the test.

AAP Punjab chief spokesperson and Anandpur Sahib candidate Malvinder Singh Kang said Mr. Mann has instructed workers to take the party’s positive agenda to the people and apprise people of all the decisions that the government had taken for the welfare of people and the State. “The AAP will continue to take decisions in the public interest as it had done over the last two years and it will fulfill all election guarantees,” he added.
