Aam Aadmi Party's senior leader Yogendra Yadav has said that the response the party has received in Punjab so far is enormous and much impressive than what they got in New Delhi and Haryana.

Yadav, who held road shows in support of party candidate Dr Dharamvir Gandhi in different assembly segments in the Patiala parliamentary constituency on Thursday, said people of Punjab would create a history as they would lead the country to bring the much-needed revolution by dethroning both the SAD-BJP alliance and the Congress in the upcoming elections.

"Seeing the response of people in villages and towns, AAP is going to play an important role and will turn into a big force in Punjab's political scenario in the near future," he claimed adding that "people of the state have been instrumental when it comes to launch of any major revolution- be it independence movement or voice against atrocities and oppression," he added.

He said politicians in Punjab had a wrong notion that AAP would eat into a big chunk of their vote share "but we have crossed that stage in the state and has our own base." People were left with AAP as an only alternative as they are fed up with the autocratic working of the SAD-BJP alliance and corrupt practices of the UPA government.

"I can guarantee that Punjab will never witness a political fight between two parties as AAP is going to play a decisive role in any election in the near future," Yadav added.

Yadav said the political scene was changing in Punjab everyday. Five days before the elections would be very crucial to keep a tab on the use of unfair means by the Congress and the SAD-BJP alliance to woo voters at the last moment.

"Yes, I strongly believe that response we got can be converted into votes but the biggest fear is the use of money, distribution of liquor and other drugs and culture of using muscle power in which both the parties have their masters," said Yadav asking his workers to remain vigilant against such practices.

Sharpening attack on the SAD-BJP government, Yadav said politicians representing incumbent government had supreme control on transportation, sand, gravel prices and drug mafia.

Criticising Rahul Gandhi and BJP's prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi, Yadav said it was a shame for the country that people had to choose between the two.

"With no concrete developmental agenda, Rahul believes in dynastic politics while other believe in the authoritarian way of government. While one believes in exploitation of vote banks, Modi believes in communalism and one-religion supremacy," he added.
