Punjab India Union Home Minister Amit Shah Statement

Union Home minister Amit Shah confirmed that negotiations with Akali Dal are on and he expects that things would be clear in 2-3 days. He also underlines that BJP wants all old NDA partners coming together once again but it’s important that his party should get rightful share.


Union Home Minister Amit Shah indicated that they were separated due to agricultural laws. The situation on the alliance of Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in Punjab will become clear this week. Union Home Minister and senior BJP leader Amit Shah has given this indication in an interview in Delhi. He said that a round of negotiations is currently going on between both the parties. At the same time, he has claimed that this time the party will be strong in Punjab also.


According to BJP sources, the alliance between BJP and Akali Dal has reached its final stage, the issue of seat sharing is getting stuck. Both the parties have not yet reached a consensus regarding 5-8. Apart from this, Akali Dal is also taking thoughtful steps regarding the issue of farmers' movement and release of captive Sikhs. However, in the last Lok Sabha elections in 2019, BJP and Akali Dal had fought together. Both parties were successful in winning 4 seats in the elections. Whereas Congress got 8 seats and AAP got one seat. However, due to agricultural laws, the paths of both the parties parted ways. In 2022, both the parties had contested the elections separately where their performance was quite disappointing.


It is important to note that as per sources, SAD Chief Sukhbir Badal is not in favour of doing an alliance based on seat sharing. As per sources, Sukhbir Badal has laid down a few conditions to the BJP that include the issues of farmers, releasing the detained Sikhs, issues of minorities, etc. Only if the BJP gives assurance to accept these demands, then only Sukhbir Badal is likely to give the go-ahead to the BJP-SAD alliance in Punjab.


The Union Home Minister said that there is never a yes or no question between Akali Dal and BJP. In this, one party makes an offer and the other makes a counter offer. However, he said that before going into alliance, we look at the fair share of Bharatiya Janata Party and the respect of the workers on the basis of initiative.
