Congress ahead in Punjab, party workers celebrate

election results Updated: Mar 11, 2017 10:21 IST

The Aam Aadmi Party is trailing behind the Congress and the ruling Akali Dal-BJP combine in Punjab. The Congress is leading in 64 seats. The AAP is leading in 23 seats and the ruling alliance in 31.

Besieged by a string of electoral reverses, the Congress desperately needs a win in Punjab to turn around its national political fortunes. The party’s Punjab campaign was based on discrediting the ruling Badal family.
