Without naming Phoolka, Bhagwant Mann said that another solution to this menace is that ECI should make a rule that if an MLA or MP resigns without completing their term, the first runners up should be declared the winner.
During campaign, Mann projected himself as someone who will always be around to lend a helping hand. But after Ghaggar breach, which happened on July 16 at Moonak in Sangrur’s Lehragaga Assembly segment, he has remained conspicuous by his absence.
AAP leader Bhagwant Mann called upon all MPs from Punjab to rise above “petty party considerations” and be one on the issue so that pressure can be built “to force the Centre to include Punjab in the national committee”.
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.
