Speaking to The Indian Express, Sandhu said that Mann’s win in Sangrur could not take away the fact that this was a ‘pyrrhic victory’ as 12 out of 13 party candidates lost their security deposits. “AAP state leadership should resign and make way for a more autonomous set up,” he said.
"I am particularly excited to see Sukhbir Singh Badal in Lok Sabha. It will be fun meeting Badal couple there. Earlier, only Harsimrat knew that Bhagwant Mann cannot be silenced. Now her husband will also know."
Lok Sabha Elections 2019: "Till Bhagwant Mann is there, AAP in Punjab will remain in hearts of people. I have eliminated the gap between leaders and people. Now, it is only between aam aadmi and Aam Aadmi Party," Bhagwant Mann said.
Addressing 20-30 villages in a day and taking out road shows through them, Mann says, “I have done my bit. An MP gets Rs five crore every year as MPLAD. It is not a big amount. Still I have kept a record of the money. Each paisa is accounted for."
Traditionally held under a tree located at central point in the village with a cemented platform around it, or outside a big darwaaza (door), or more recently under a shed, the ‘Satth’ has been a spot for villagers in Punjab to assemble and speakers to address them on vital issues.
"In 2014 and 2017, the party was spreading its wings in Punjab and hence assistance was provided to us by the Delhi team. But now party organisation is in place and we have been given a free hand," says AAP's Sangrur candidate Bhagwant Mann.
Aman Arora said that since no AAP politician in Punjab could be targeted on allegations of running a drug mafia, sand mining mafia etc. therefore this allegation against Mann was the only thing left with the opponents of the party.
