AAP’s CM candidate Bhagwant Mann to contest from Dhuri

Chandigarh, Jan 20 (UNI) The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) has decided to field Punjab’s chief ministerial candidate Bhagwant Mann from Dhuri constituency in the upcoming Punjab Legislative Assembly elections, the party announced on Thursday.
Announcing his candidature in a press conference, AAP's Punjab affairs co-in-charge Raghav Chadha said, "People of Punjab consider Bhagwant Mann as a breath of fresh air for political change in the state, as Mann is a partner in the sorrows and joys of the common man and he has in his heart for Punjab, Punjabi and Punjabiyat. He said that Mann would win from his constituency Dhuri with a record breaking margin.
He also said that party national convener Arvind Kejriwal and Bhagwant Mann would prove to be a dynamic duo in Punjab, they would emerge victorious as the people of Punjab love Bhagwant Mann and Arvind Kejriwal from the bottom of their hearts. People hope to eradicate corruption from the country, protect government resources and provide better facilities to the common people, and they only trust them to do so.
About Bhagwant Mann, the AAP leader said, "Bhagwant Mann is AAP’s only Member of Parliament and he is also the state president of the party. Mann strengthened the Aam Aadmi Party in Punjab. The people of Sangrur elected Bhagwant Mann as a Member of Lok Sabha twice in 2014 and 2019 and now they wanted Bhagwant Mann to contest from his district as the Chief Ministerial candidate. And with great pleasure and respect, AAP has decided to field Bhagwant Mann from Dhuri constituency.”
The people of Punjab had cast their vote in favor of Bhagwant Mann in the referendum where 93.3 per cent people had chosen him. As a result, AAP national convener Arvind Kejriwal had announced Bhagwant Mann as the party's chief minister candidate, he added.
Chadha claimed that only AAP is contesting in Punjab with the announced candidate of the Chief Minister and the candidate has also been chosen by the people of the state. He said that Mann has the substance to developed Punjab economically, socially, educationally and politically. He hoped that the people of Punjab would also elect Bhagwant Mann as CM in elections to form a government of Aam Aadmi Party in Punjab.
He said that Punjab, which was known as the golden sparrow of the country, has been ruined by the ruling parties. He said that these parties have weakened the state intellectually, economically, communally and morally. Today, Punjab has a debt of over Rs 3 lakh crore. The youth of Punjab is hitting the skids due to corruption, mafia rule and drugs, for which Shiromani Akali Dal Badal, BJP, Congress, Capt Amarinder Singh and Chief Minister Charanjit Singh Channi are responsible as the Badal family has been in power for nearly 20 years, and the Congress, has looted Punjab for 25 years.
Chadha said that now the people of Punjab wanted to give the reins of the state to Bhagwant Mann for prosperity and peace. That is why today, AAP announced not only the constituency of its Chief Ministerial candidate but also the constituency of the next Chief Minister of Punjab.
