100 days after Punjab sweep, AAP thwarted in CM bastion by Moosewala, rage, inaccessibility

Sangrur victor Simranjit Mann: SAD(A) chief who had last laugh on Bhagwant Mann turf

Dealing a severe blow to the ruling Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) in Punjab, the Shiromani Akali Dal (Amritsar) president, Simranjit Singh Mann, emerged as the victor Sunday in the crucial bypoll in the Sangrur Lok Sabha constituency, the bastion of Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann, defeating AAP candidate Gurmail Singh in a neck-and-neck fight.
