BJP’s emphasis on Punjab
There has been a lot of emphasis on Punjab in these organizational appointments. Captain Amarinder Singh had joined BJP along with his supporters in September this year. He also merged his newly formed party Punjab Lok Congress (PLC) with the BJP. The BJP had contested the last elections to the Punjab Assembly in alliance with the PLC and the Shiromani Akali Dal (United) led by former Union minister Sukhdev Singh Dhindsa. However, not a single PLC candidate was able to win and Singh himself was defeated from his bastion Patiala city.
