Aam Aadmi Party’s support from Non-Resident Indians abroad may benefit the party in Punjab in the Assembly elections. According to a report by NDTV many NRIs who are resident of Punjab have come back the party to win the Punjab elections. If AAP could surprise the nation by winning four seats in parliamentary elections, contesting Punjab elections may be not so far-fetched.

NRIs told NDTV that if there can be good governance abroad they believe that there can be good governance in India as well. Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has been campaigning across Punjab telling people to remove Akali-BJP and Congress and give AAP a chance at forming the government. According to AAP, there are 2,500 NRIs who have come their homes abroad to support the party in Punjab.

Punjabis residing abroad is not a new phenomenon, 1 out 5 persons abroad is a Punjabi. The NRIs told NDTV they left their jobs here to go abroad because they felt the nation did not give them favourable returns. The Aam Aadmi Party gets 20% of its funding from NRIs, according to NDTV.

AAP developed a “Chalo Punjab” campaign urging NRIs to support the party and its agendas, some of whom have come back to their native town and others are making phone calls to prospective voters by cold-calling. Last week, Kejriwal had said that he has shortage of resources to fight the Punjab Assembly elections.

    In Indian politics, Kejriwal is far better option than anyone else. I had huge hope from Modi, but i soon realised hes just a feku. He talks big about Corruption, but shows us the demonitization drama. WjWheres Lokpal, Mr. Modi?? Modi is a habitual liar & those who blame Kejriwal for everything should know that so far every political continued wt the status quo. AAP challenges that & this reason alone is enough to ensure there hate amongst all parties n their followers. AAP will WIN Punjab & they alone can bring visible changes soon & not fekubaazi as we see today in center.Jai Hind!

          People are fed up with the dirty games of BJP and Congress.They will be thrown out this time as they have ruined generations of punjabis.AAP will sweep.They must be careful as well because if they do not come upto expectations,they will meet the same fate.Kejriwal represents the common man who is disgusted with the present corrupt political system.People longing for a positive change.

            There is something extraordinary happening in the history of Punjab politics right in front of our eyes, People are thronging AAP rallies in ds, things are reaching a crescendo .... The kind of enthusiasm that people of Punjab are showing towards the election is proof enough that they are yearning for a change .... Mark my words this will change the course of Indian politics.

              I fully support this comment made by a gentleman elsewhere:Kejriwal is doing everything in his power to save your country and if you can't see that you're blind or paid off by Modi. India as a w country should be with Kejriwal. He's educated which Modi isn't, he's honest which Modi isn't, he works hard for respect which Modi doesn't, he's trying to make yiur country corruption free which Modi isn't. Think before you post nonsense the internet and make yourself look like a moron. Let's go Kejriwal!!! Put all these corrupt politicians behind bars!!!

                        I think all the 2500 people are here to make sure to that Mr. Kejriwal is defeated. Because Kejriwal is good for blaming Prime Minister for every of his inconvenience. I am sick and tired Mr. Kejriwals kiddy comments with media.

                          Mr Vidya Sagar would do well to cultivate the habit of being sick and tired. There will be much more of this. The other alternative is of course to support AAP in their attempt to clean and improve political governance.

                              The most dirty party taken birth in the name of AAP. Kejri itself has become a symbol of culture abuse. Doing only corruption , 8ncoting people against national interest. Every man who is anti national or traitor, AAP and Kejri is there to support him and give a political shelter. If one is against Modi..then hurrah.... he is super hero of AAP, irrespective of his character and back ground. Almost All MLAs belong to criminal back ground, but in view of Kejri they are honest one because they are against BJP. Fighting against drugs with druggist CM candidate. Fighting against corruption with most corrupt man Kejri and others. Want police under Delhi control to prevent arrest of their MLAs.Came in politics to erase corruption, what happened in Delhi. Odd even rule, by bribing thousands of crore from auto manufacturing companies. Chanda through Hawala. This party and Kejri is at abysm of poor and anti national politics.
