Punjab: After the historic victory in Punjab, the Aam Aadmi Party government has been formed. Meanwhile, Shiromani Akali Dal chief Sukhbir Singh Badal has offered to resign. Taking moral responsibility for the party’s defeat in the Punjab Assembly elections on Thursday, Sukhbir Singh Badal has offered to resign from his post. However, his offer of resignation has been rejected by the party’s district presidents and senior leaders. The same news is also that the party also decided to form a high-level panel to take feedback from its leaders as well as people on the electoral debacle. In the state, the Aam Aadmi Party has achieved a big achievement by winning 92 seats out of 117 assembly seats. Such was the wind of the Aam Aadmi Party that the Congress, which was hoping to return to power again, suffered a major setback.
Sukhbir Singh Badal offers to resign
The Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) had the worst ever performance in the Punjab Assembly elections. The party won only three seats. Sukhbir Badal himself lost the election from Jalalabad while his father and former Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal lost from Lambi. During a conversation with the party’s district presidents and senior leadership, Sukhbir Badal said that the party and its well-being are paramount for me. I have always worked in the interest of the party. I have the moral responsibility for the party’s defeat. And ready to quit. The statement said that the party leadership along with several district presidents rejected his proposal.
‘Party president not responsible for defeat’
A formal resolution was also passed unanimously to express confidence in the leadership of Sukhbir Singh Badal. The leaders said that not only did Badal lead from the front but he also inspired the party leadership as well as the cadre to give their best. Party leaders said that though the results were not up to the expectations, the party president cannot be blamed in any way. He said that people voted overwhelmingly for change and the entire opposition was swept away in the tsunami of Aam Aadmi Party. Akali Dal leaders said that voters at many places did not even know the name of the Aam Aadmi Party candidate, but they voted for a change. Due to this the Akali Dal had to pay a heavy price.
