BJP to contest all 117 seats in 2022 Punjab polls

India Blooms News Service | @indiablooms | 07 Nov 2021, 09:48 pm

Chandigarh/IBNS: The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) will field candidates on all 117 seats in the Punjab Assembly election scheduled for 2022, Punjab BJP president Ashwani Sharma said, media reports said.

In 2017 Assembly polls, Congress won an absolute majority in the state, winning 77 seats.

Arwind Kejriwal's Aam Aadmi Party won 20 seats and emerged as the second-largest party.

The Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) could win only 15 seats while the BJP managed just 3 seats.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Home Minister Amit Shah and BJP chief JP Nadda are participating in the party's national executive meeting. 

The discussion is likely to be focused on the election strategy in seven states that will go to polls the next year.
