There is a bad news for the INC, as per the predictions Indian National Congress is expected to win only 8 to 14 seats. The ruling party SAD and BJP seems to secure only 6 to 12 seats, which is a huge disappointment.

The competition seems very interesting with the addition of AAP for the very first time time in Punjab elections. Most of the opinion polls conducted by various agencies shows AAP as a favourite party. BJP, INC and SAD has a big competitor in the elections and they seems to be struggling to get enough support. Drug abuse, corruption and unemployment are the three major issues in Punjab elections. All the political parties are trying to use these issues to get the trust of the voters. Punjab opinion polls gives an initial picture of the scenario but they are just the predictions, which are surveyed on a small sample of voters. The fate of candidates will be decided by the votes of the people of Punjab.

  50. Harpreet Singh February 4, 2017 at 03:38

    Hello Punjab,
    Here I’ve seen ppl are writing About AAP, CONG, And BJP. Here every ppl have their own thinking abt all the political parties. But think for Punjab think for INDIA.
    Jo log Aap ko ye samjhte hai ki wo hi option hai PUNJAB me wahi aane wale time me sabse jayda regret karenge.
    aur jo log ye bolte hai ki aap k aane se sab thik hoga so, plz come or ask your relatives living in Delhi wo apko sahi batayenge.
    Look towards Our Hounrable PM. wo srf mere hi nhi wo sabke pm hai even wo opposition walo k bhi PM. jo banda bina bole apna kaam karte rahta hai bina kuch mange bina leave k continuously kaam kar rha hai kya wo apne liye kar rha hai ya apne pariwar k liye??

    aur jo (Kejriwal)srf excuses deta rahta hai . Jise kaam karna hota hai wo dikhawa nhi karta.
    Ye apka vote hai apka mandate hai Think before.

    Thank You


    Before taking any decision please check.
    you won’t understand……..and when u understand u’ll be regretting. It is your Vote your mandate but before going for any decision check everything on the ground basis. what people are saying/ thinking about App.

  51. rishab February 4, 2017 at 18:03

    Very true ….

    We are not electing any particular parties at state level but we are supporting our honorable prime minister ……he’s is really doing a good job …but if we want to support him then we have to support him no matter what….bcoz he’s not doing anything for his own or for his family but for our country …Jai Hind.

  52. san February 16, 2017 at 17:22

    If AAP wins in Punjab, Whole nation will regrets as We are seeing in Delhi. After election nothing is happening. AAP se who TUM ho gaye hai. GOD bless Punjab, if AAP wins. I voted AAP in Delhi :-((

  53. balwant February 20, 2017 at 16:15

    In Delhi AAP good job done to control Electricity operators BSES/Tata and result that there is NO electricity bill increase even above some ppl gets rebate also. Second work is control of school and for the last two years schools are not successful to fetch more and more money from parents every year. Third is good medicines available in delhi dispensaries and mohala clinics. As far as law and order is concern it is total responsibility of Central govt in which Central govt totally fail.
