While all the main parties have come out on the field for the Punjab elections, now new parties have also started entering. Ahead of the assembly elections, a new political party has been announced to fight for the rights of farmers and workers in the state. On Saturday, the party’s president Lashkar Singh launched the ‘Krantikari Mazdoor Kisan Party’.
Talking to the media about the launch of Krantikari Mazdoor Kisan Party, Lashkar Singh said that the party will fight for the issues related to workers, farmers and the people of Punjab. He said- “We are not an organization, we are a party now. We are going to register with the Election Commission of India soon. We will work to protect the rights of the people. We will not depend on any other party. And will fully contest the elections.”
The announcement of the formation of the new political party came shortly after Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced the repeal of three agricultural laws. Preparations have begun for the Punjab Assembly elections to be held in 2022. Political parties in the state are coming forward with their own strategies. The recent decision by the Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led government to withdraw three agriculture laws and a possible tie-up between former chief minister Amarinder Singh and the Bharatiya Janata Party is expected to have a significant impact on Punjab’s electoral dynamics.
Apart from this Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) and Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) alliance is also running for power in the electoral state. The Akali Dal, one of the oldest allies of the BJP, broke ties with the Centre-ruling party in 2020 over agricultural laws. The ruling Congress party in the state will contest the upcoming Punjab elections without a chief ministerial candidate. AICC in-charge of Punjab Harish Chaudhary said that the election will be fought under the leadership of State Congress President Navjot Singh Sidhu.
