New Delhi, Jan 13: With the Punjab elections nearing, Pakistan is on overdrive mode to push its anti-India propaganda. The Intelligence Bureau and multiple agencies are keeping a close watch on the various social media accounts formed to spread hate and a disinformation campaign against India.
Punjab has seen scores of incidents in recent times where a thorough agenda by Pakistan has been attempted to be pushed. There have been targeted killings and also the recent Ludhiana Court blast.
On January 5, a major incident was reported when the Prime Minister’s security was breached. PM Narendra Modi was held up for 20 minutes in Punjab due to a protest that was ongoing on the road. The Supreme Court has even set up a committee headed by a retired judge to probe the incident and suggest ways of bettering securing the PM of the land.
Chandigarh, Feb 3: Punjab goes to polls on Saturday and none can really give a clear picture as to who the winner would be.
There have been several developments on the political front in the past few months. Navjot Singh Sidhu has joined the Congress and the Aam Admi Party too has thrown its hat in the ring. Amandeep Sandhu, writer, researcher and journalist, has been travelling the length and breadth of the state to get a clear assessment about how the elections would pan out.
Sandhu took time off his busy schedule to have an informal chat with OneIndia and in his assessment of things he finds that there would be no clear winner in Punjab.
Chandigarh, Jan 16: The Congress was all smiles after it roped in Navjot Singh Sidhu into the party on Sunday. For the Congress its most realistic chance lies in Punjab when compared to the other poll bound states of Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Manipur and Goa.
Sidhu is likely to contest the Amritsar East seat and may be made the deputy chief minister if the Congress wins the elections. Despite being out of action for long, Sidhu still continues to be a popular face in Punjab.
