Another name for Sardar Bhagat Singh is Kranti (revolution). When the party includes his name in its messaging, it means that the party is indicating that they will do revolutionary work for the state. Aam Aadmi Party is not only using this strategy in Punjab but also in Delhi.
Bhagat Singh is a youth icon. He is followed by the young population of Punjab. Making him the idol of the party can be a good step for AAP as it attracts a mass of population towards them.
Many political parties had used the name of freedom fighters name in their political messaging. During the election campaigns when opposition parties targeted Arwind Kejriwal, he replied, even Bhagat Singh was called a Terrorist by the Britishers.
