Sangrur MP and AAP’s CM face Bhagwant Mann said the complete control of Punjab affairs will be in his hands

Punjab Aam Aadmi Party president and chief ministerial face Bhagwant Mann on Wednesday asserted that his party will rule the state for 25 years once voted to power. Earlier, Shiromani Akali Dal chief Sukhbir Badal had made a similar claim about his own party’s prospects.

On the second day of his campaign in the Dhuri assembly segment, Mann dismissed the claims that the AAP is relying on national convener and Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal’s name to gain votes even as he has been declared the CM face in Punjab.

“The complete control of Punjab affairs will be in my hands. Kejriwal has reiterated in his speeches and interviews that Bhagwant will run the state. We will not just rule for five years, but the AAP will be in power for 25 years,” Mann said.

When asked whether there will be any impact if the Congress declares Charanjit Singh Channi as its CM face, Mann said, “They earlier claimed they would go to the polls without the CM face, but when my name was announced, they have also emulated the process.”
