The Punjab Assembly elections will be keenly watched this year as the ruling Congress struggles to retain power after a bitter power tussle between Navjot Singh Sidhu and Captain Amarinder Singh that also saw the latter stepping down from the chief minister's post and floating his own party later. Amarinder Singh contested this election in an alliance with the BJP, while the party's former allies, the Akali Dal, fought on its own. This paved way for Charanjit Singh, a Dalit leader, to become the chief minister of Punjab. While the Congress works to soothe the cracks left behind by the infighting, Arvind Kejriwal's Aam Aadmi Party could emerge as a strong contender in the state with former actor and satirist Bhagwant Mann as its chief ministerial candidate.
