Major embarrassment for AAP, Simranjit Mann wins Sangrur bypoll

From MLAs, all ministers, CM Bhagwant Mann to Delhi leadership including Arvind Kejriwal campaigned in the constituency but failed to protect its "Bastion" 

Punjab E News (Sangrur):-  In a major setback to ruling Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), its candidate Gurmail Singh has lost Sangrur by-poll elections from  SAD (Amritsar) President Simranjit Singh Mann here on Sunday.

    Despite fierce campaigning by all AAP leadership to safeguard its 'Capital', they lost the seat three months after forming government in Punjab by bagging 92 seats out of 117 in assembly election.

    "It is a major embarrassment for AAP including CM Mann, as they claimed Sangrur to be their Capital but now faced a defeat just 100 days after formation of government in the state with a landslide victory," said an AAP MLA on the requesting anonymity.

    He said that it is evident now that people are satisfied with the AAP government in Punjab as party has yet to fulfil its major poll promises besides cracking down on drug mafia and sand mafia.

    CM Mann won this seat in 2014 and 2019 and left it after electing as MLA three months back. Mann and other hubris AAP leaders termed Sangrur as its Capital and a strong hold, which opposition will never be able to win it. 

     Meanwhile, winning candidate Mann thanked people of Sangrur for his win and assured that he will raise people's voice in the Parliament.
