Two days after polling, the scenario at Badal village has undergone apparent changes. There were no security personnel in the village on Thursday and villagers were busy with their daily routine. However, people could be seen discussing the election results. While some said that the high poll percentage may be an indication against a vote against SAD-BJP, others felt that it could be due to the anti-incumbency factor.
At the Badals’ residence, chief minister Parkash Singh Badal was away at Chandigarh. Nor deputy chief minister Sukhbeer Singh Badal or his wife and MP from Bathinda, Harsimrat Kaur Badal were in the village. According to party workers and security personnel at Badals’ residence, the three were away since Wednesday.
