After faring poorly in Punjab Assembly election, Aam Aadmi Party's newly-elected legislators will be meeting Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal at his residence on Wednesday.
Sources told India Today that all 20 AAP MLAs from Punjab would be in Delhi.
A decision on choosing the Leader of Opposition in Punjab Assembly is likely to be taken in this meeting itself.
HERE IS ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW
- Being the second largest party in Punjab election, AAP will be the principle opposition to the Captain Amarinder Singh-led Congress government.
- Sources also informed that senior AAP leader and lawyer H.S Phoolka who won from Dakha constituency and former Congressman-turned-AAP MLA from Bholath constituency Sukhpal Singh Khaira were the frontrunners to be chosen as the leader of AAP legislators and Leader of Opposition in Punjab Assembly.
- Kejriwal-led AAP, which made its electoral debut in Punjab, was left stunned after it failed to win a significant number of seats in the state, especially in Malwa region.
- Despite AAP's high-decibel campaign, the party came a distant second to Congress, which won the elections comprehensively with 77 seats.
- Senior party leaders and Punjab MLAs will also brainstorm about the reason behind their below-par performance and the way forward for the party in Punjab.
