After Aam Aadmi Party scored over other political outfits by issuing a list of 19 candidates for the 2017 election, union minister for food processing, Harsimrat Kaur Badal, said that the move by AAP will not have any effect on the political strategy of the SAD-BJP alliance.

On the sidelines of her visit to attend religious ceremony at a local court premises, the union minister said AAP has brewed troubles for itself as its workers have started raising eyebrows over the distribution of tickets, on Saturday.

“AAP is facing revolt from its own workers, the AAP bubble will burst when it declares candidates from the remaining seats for 2017 assembly elections,” said Harsimrat.

“AAP has no base in Punjab, as it has no face to project as the chief ministerial candidate. I openly challenge AAP and Arvind Kejriwal, to announce the CM candidate first. Their party structure will break down completely after they declare that,” she added.

Attacking congress, she said the people of Punjab must ask Congress and its leaders what they had done for the development of Punjab during their tenure and in UPA regime.

Harsimrat accompanied by senior officials of district administration addressed public gatherings in Bhunder, Chauke, Ramnagar and Maiser Khana villages.

She handed over a cheque of developmental funds of `50 lakh to Bathinda bar association from MP-LAD grant.
