PUNJAB ELECTION RESULTS 2017
* Delhi CM and AAP leader Arvind Kejriwal thanks party workers for their role in Punjab elections.
* AAP’s Jarnail Singh, who had resigned as MLA from Delhi’s Rajouri Garden constituency, has lost from the Lambi constituency. He was referred to as ‘Punjab da Jarnail’ by his party which, many felt, brought him into the assembly elections toshed the outsider’s tag. His ‘claim to fame’ previously was hurling a shoe at Congress’ P Chidambaram.
* Double joy for Captain Amrinder Singh who is celebrating his 75th birthday. He has won by 52,375 votes from Patiala constituency. “I would like to thank people of Punjab for voting us in huge numbers,” he says. Asked about AAP, the leader has this to say: Kejriwal is like a summer storm and now he is gone.
