Punjab Congress takes dig at CM Mann after NSUI victory in Panjab University elections
Leader of Opposition in the Punjab Assembly, Pratap Singh Bajwa, said on Wednesday that the state Congress was not willing to ally with the ruling AAP in the upcoming election.
Partap Singh Bajwa, senior Punjab Congress leader, slammed Punjab Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann on Wednesday after National Students Union of India (NSUI) leader Jatinder Singh won the Panjab University Campus Student's Council (PUCSC). Congratulating Jatinder Singh for the victory, Bajwa on X wrote, "Bhagwant Maan, we are contesting and winning elections. I would like to convey to Bhagwant Mann that not only we but also our young brigade know how to fight elections and win them too," he added.
"Congratulations to Congress Party Student Organization NSUI candidate Jatinder Singh on being elected President of Panjab University Chandigarh and congratulations to the entire Congress Party," Bajwa said, adding, "We will win 24 definitely keep the war going. We have always maintained that students would not allow the government to rule here," Bajwa's post read. https://twitter.com/Partap_Sbajwa/status/1699463331785105493
Speaking to ANI on Wednesday, Jatinder Singh, a PhD scholar from Bathinda, said, "I thank all the students for their support. This time I got an opportunity to represent Punjab University. Our fight is against the government. We have always maintained that students would not allow the government to rule here." Bajwa's statement comes at a time when there is also tension within the Punjab Congress after the formation of the INDIA alliance with the AAP as a member of the alliance. The alliance is working towards contesting the upcoming Lok Sabha elections jointly with the AAP to defeat the Bharatiya Janta Party at the Centre. However some leaders of the Punjab Congress are weary of an alliance with the AAP in the state.
Leader of Opposition in the Punjab Assembly, Pratap Singh Bajwa, said on Wednesday that the state Congress was not willing to ally with the ruling AAP in the upcoming election. On X, Bajwa wrote, "Punjab Congress Cadre is in no mood to form an alliance with the AAP Punjab for the forthcoming general elections. Even after getting hold of the power in the state for the past 18 months, the AAP is desperate to form an alliance with the Congress."
"No Punjab Congress leader has ever issued a statement about contesting elections in an alliance with the AAP. It is only the AAP leadership that is making such statements because they have lost their ground in Punjab. AAP's victory in the Punjab assembly election in 2022 was a political experiment that has failed terribly," he added in the post. (ANI)
