The Sangrur Lok Sabha by-election is no less than a test for the Aam Aadmi Party government, in which the AAP government will have to prove its popularity in the state, on the basis of which the party defeated the traditional political parties of the state by winning 92 seats out of 117 in the assembly elections. was thrown out of power. The Sangrur Lok Sabha seat has fallen vacant due to the resignation of Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann and apart from the AAP government, the personal reputation of the Chief Minister is also at stake.
It has been only three months since the Aam Aadmi Party government was formed in Punjab, but during this period incidents like killing of famous singer Sidhu Musewala, killing of three Kabaddi players, attack on Intelligence Headquarters of Punjab Police raised questions on law and order in the state. Opponent has been given a chance. During this, severe power crisis has also become a big issue. Despite this, AAP’s upper hand is visible in this by-election, mainly because the opposition does not have any political issue apart from the above issues.
The three-month-old government cannot even be accused of not fulfilling its promises to the public. The annual budget of the state is to be presented in the last week of June, so the financial situation is also not becoming an issue. In such a situation, the opposition parties have resorted to emotional issues, which are unlikely to be very effective. The opposition parties have their own issues, but there is no issue against the AAP government except law and order and power crisis in the state.
