Why Akalis are not going with BJP?

April 07 2023

About two weeks back, Akali leader Harsimrat Kaur Badal went and met the BJP top leadership in Parliament. It is said that in a matter of words, the top leadership said that ‘BJP and Akali Dal should once again contest elections together in Punjab.’ With this proposal, Harsimrat Badal reached her home state and narrated the entire conversation to her husband Sukhbir Badal and gave details. After this Sukhbir called a meeting of some prominent Akali leaders i.e. his core team and mentioned this offer from the BJP. The Akali leaders present in the meeting opposed this proposal in unison, saying that ‘BJP has no name-bearer in Punjab at present and if we go with them, we too may meet the same fate.’ So perhaps the matter has not made any ‘ripple’.
