The Congress managed to go well beyond the halfway mark in the elections, garnering 77 out of the 117 seats in the Assembly. One of the key reasons the Congress won was the people’s disenchantment with the SAD-BJP government.
Congratulations @capt_amarinder on taking oath as CM. Wishing you the very best in working for Punjab’s development.
