Punjab Election Results 2017: On 75th Birthday, Captain Wins, AAP Didn’t Even Come Close

Punjab Election Results 2017: On 75th Birthday, Captain Wins, AAP Didn't Even Come Close

could not have hoped for a better 75th birthday. His party, the Congress, is making a comeback in Punjab after 10 years and he is expected to return as Chief Minister.

The Congress is set to win a huge majority in Punjab. The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) of Arvind Kejriwal, which had been tipped by many as the winner, is a poor second and the ruling Akali-BJP is last.

“Arvind Kejriwal is a summer storm, he came and he’s gone,” Amarinder Singh quipped about the man who had repeatedly challenged him during the campaign.




As for his party’s victory, Amarinder Singh graciously credited Sonia Gandhi, who did not campaign at all, and Rahul Gandhi, who reserved much of his energies for Uttar Pradesh.Popular as “Captain” among his supporters, Mr Singh had declared that this is his last election.

He said his first priority would be to fight drugs; Punjab’s drug problem was depicted in the acclaimed movie “Udta Punjab” recently.

“The people of Punjab have given us a big mandate. I have vowed to finish drugs within four weeks,” the Captain said.

He was non-committal on having the flamboyant cricketer-turned-politician Navjot Singh Sidhu as his deputy.

“That will be decided by the Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi. All ministers will be decided by the party leadership,” he said.

The Captain has not shared the warmest of ties with Mr Sidhu, who joined the Congress in January amid speculation that he was angling for the Chief Minister’s post.

Mr Singh contested two seats. He has won his traditional stronghold of Patiala, but in Lambi, where he challenged Chief Minister Prakash Singh Badal, he is trailing.

PM Modi Congratulates Amarinder Singh On Poll Win

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday called up Congress leader Amarinder Singh to congratulate him on the electoral victory in Punjab.

“Spoke to @capt_amarinder & congratulated him on the win in Punjab,” PM Modi tweeted.

His tweet came as the Congress party was heading towards forming the government in Punjab.

The ruling Shiromani Akali Dal-Bharatiya Janata Party combine received a major drubbing in these Assembly elections.

PM Modi also wished Mr Singh on his 75th birthday, which falls on the same day.

“Also wished him (Amarinder) a happy birthday & prayed for his long & healthy life,” the Prime Minister added.

 The Congress leader was born on this day in 1942 in Patiala, Punjab.

Punjab Election Results 2017: Congress Wins, AAP's Hopes Crushed

Punjab election results 2017: The Congress campaign was led by Amarinder Singh.

The Congress is set for a comeback in Punjab after 10 years. The party is leading in over 70 seats. But the results strongly indicate that the Aam Aadmi Party’s dreams of seizing its second state after Delhi are over.

AAP is at the second spot, with the ruling Akali-BJP combine doing a little better than exit polls had predicted.

Punjab has 117 seats, a party needs 59 to form the government.

Celebrations that began early outside Arvind Kejriwal’s home in Delhi this morning dimmed considerably and faded out when the results started coming in.

AAP’s Somnath Bharti said Punjab, along with Goa – where the party was doing equally badly – would be a “great learning experience” on what went wrong.

“We are new to politics, we don’t understand numbers very much. We believe in hard work, hard work for people, hard work in the assembly. I still believe the trends will reverse by 10:30 am,” said Mr Bharti, a former Delhi Minister.

The Congress campaign was led by Captain Amarinder Singh, who turns 75 today. He is trailing in Lambi, where he has challenged Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal, but winning in Patiala, the other seat he is contesting from.
