Captain Amarinder Singh’s leadership appears to have proved decisive in Punjab Assembly elections as it helped the
Congress become the only alternative for the change seeking voters.
The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) which had initially gained momentum in the state failed to sustain it as AAP failed provide a face to lead its campaign. The exit of the many senior AAP leaders in the run up to elections also dented the party’s image and created confusion in its supporters.
Capt Amarinder, the Congress’ chief ministerial candidate, on the hand took charge of the party’s campaign and succeeded in lifting themorale of party workers to take on the mighty Shiromani Akali Dal-Bhartiya Janta Party (SAD-BJP) combine.
