Punjab Municipal Election 2021 Results: Congress today said that local election results are a tight slap on face of BJP, SAD and AAP by people of Punjab for playing with the feelings of our Anndaatas. Congress has swept the Punjab municipal corporation by bagging six out of 7 corporations results for which was announced today. It has emerged as the single largest party in the seventh corporation – Moga. The party has also fared well in the municipal councils/nagar panchayat polls.

For the first time in the last 53 years, Bathinda will have a Congress mayor, scripting a new history. “History has been made today! Bathinda will get a Congress Mayor for the 1st time in 53 years! Thank you to ALL Bathinda residents. Congratulations to the people of Bathinda for a spectacular victory. Kudos to all Congress candidates and workers, who toiled for this day,” said Punjab minister and Congress leader Manpreet Singh Badal.

The results for the municipal corporation/council elections have confirmed a loss of face for the BJP in Punjab as ruling Congress and the saffron party’s former ally Shiromani Akali Dal managed to win big in the polls. It’s evident from the results that the ongoing farmers’ protest have dented the BJP’s chances in the polls. The sentiments can be understood from the fact that out of 13 wards of Rahon Municipal Council, Congress won 7, Shiromani Akali Dal 4 and Bahujan Samaj Party 2 while no BJP candidate got more than 50 votes. The results were on similar lines across wards. In fact, many BJP leaders have opted to contest the election as an independent candidate fearing defeat. On the other hand, Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) has failed to make a big impact even after high-voltage campaign in the polls.

    Amarinder hails Cong's victory in municipal polls

     Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh on Wednesday hailed the victory of the  Congress in the state municipal polls as not just a validation of the state government's development-oriented policies and programmes, but also a "total rejection" of the "anti-people actions" of the major opposition parties -- SAD, AAP and BJP. Congratulating Punjab Congress president Sunil Jakhar, as well as all the MLAs, members and party workers, for the stupendous performance, he said, "The people of the state have clearly and unequivocally denounced the divisive, undemocratic, unconstitutional and regressive agendas of the three parties." 

    Singh thanked and congratulated the people for defeating the "negative and vicious forces that are out to ruin Punjab and its future". "The first major polls to be held in Punjab since the enactment of the draconian farm laws also underscored people's angst with the BJP, which was responsible for the anti-farmer legislation with the active support of its former ally, the SAD, and the collusion of ruling AAP in Delhi," the chief minister alleged in a statement here. 

    "All these parties had shamelessly trampled on the rights of the farmers, with the clear aim of destroying Punjab," he said. Singh claimed that the subsequent theatrics and crocodile tears of SAD and AAP for the farmers had failed to befool the voters who had seen through the political gimmickry of these parties. 

    "With the Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD), the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) not even coming a close second to the Congress and trailing even independent candidates in some wards, the pro-governance and pro-progress verdict of the urban voters of Punjab was a clear endorsement of their negation of loathsome political ideologies," the chief minister said. 

    "It is a powerful message to these parties to keep out of Punjab which is not ready to either forgive or forget the deceit and the treachery to which the people of the state were subjected by them," he added. (PTI)
