As the election fever is getting hot in the Indian state of Punjab, the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) has started an aggressive campaign in the state to woo the voters.
Bhagwant Mann, an AAP member of parliament (MP) from Sangrur, said today that people of Punjab are now tired of corrupt Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) and Congress governments. That’s why, he said, entire Punjab has picked up broom (Jhadu), the election symbol of AAP.
The comedian-turned-politician Mann was addressing an election meeting – under the banner Punjab Inquilab rally- in the state.
“A ray of hope was needed for people of Punjab. That ray of hope has been given by AAP,” Mann said.
