Aam Aadmi Party's (AAP) chief ministerial candidate Bhagwant Mann said that the Congress party is delaying the announcement of its chief ministerial face in Punjab due to fear of splitting. Congress is also frightened by the fear of defeat. They have no idea who should be declared as Chief Minister Candidate. The Congress high command is still in doubt whether to announce the name of the chief ministerial candidate or contest elections without declaring one name for CM face.Addressing the media at the party headquarters on Thursday, Mann said that seeing the mood of the people of Punjab, Congress is now worried. Seeing all the media surveys indicating the formation of the Aam Aadmi Party government, Congress is apprehensive and is not directly forwarding any one of its leaders due to division in their party.
Mann said that February 5th is the last day for the withdrawal of nominations of candidates for the Punjab Assembly elections. That is why the Congress decided February 6th to announce of its chief ministerial face. Congress fears that if the chief ministerial candidate's name is announced earlier, then a large number of candidates from the opposing factions will withdraw their nominations and give up the candidature.Taking a dig at Congress for conducting a survey, Mann said that Congress questioned the survey of Aam Aadmi Party and called it fake. Now they are getting the survey done by imitating the Aam Aadmi Party. Mann said that now people have made up their mind to teach a lesson to Congress. The people of Punjab are fully determined to give a chance to the Aam Aadmi Party this time.
