Punjab polls result: SAD-BJP again big win

The BJP can breathe easy in Punjab as its alliance with the Shiromani Akali Dal has created history by becoming the first coalition government to beat anti-incumbency and return to power. The Congress faced a clear defeat and Manpreet Badal’s Punjab People’s Party even failed to open their account.

The incumbent Akalis led by son Sukhbir and 84-year-old father Prakash Singh Badal are the first to win a second straight term to power in the state and they managed to increase to 56 seats from 2007’s tally of 49 seats.
