Kejriwal congratulates Punjab for ‘revolution', Siddhu accepts ‘voice of people’
Congress' Punjab Chief, Navjot Singh Siddhu, has ‘humbly accepted’ the people's mandate saying, ‘the voice of the people is the voice of God’
As Bhagwant Mann gets closer to becoming the next Chief Minister of Punjab and taking the party's footprint beyond the national capital Arvind Kejriwal tweeted a victory image with him with a tweet capturing his sentiment.
“Congratulations to Punjab for this revolution,” Kejriwal tweeted.
A large number of AAP volunteers, Sangrur deputy commissioner Ramvir along with Senior Superintendent of Police Swapan Sharma have reached Mann's Sangrur residence, with security increased.
Mann, his sister Manpreet Kaur and AAP Punjab in-charge Jarnail Singh are at his residence. Mann will shortly address from the stage set outside his house. Earlier, in the morning Mann visited Mantuana Sahib Gurdwara and prayed for success.
Meanwhile, Congress' Punjab Chief, Navjot Singh Siddhu, has ‘humbly accepted’ the people's mandate saying, ‘the voice of the people is the voice of God’
Congress' hopes to retain Punjab after the ouster of its former chairman Amarinder Singh have been dashed by AAP's ecstatic performance which crossed the majority mark within a few hours after counting started. Both Siddhu and Punjab Chief Minister Channi were trailing at the time of writing this story.
