She contested in the Assembly elections for the first time and won. When she was given the ticket for election, many party workers have opposed the decision, accusing her of being an outsider. She competed with 16 other candidates for the seat. It is the seat from which the maximum number of candidates contested. 

After her victory, Mann’s supporters distributed Laddooos while celebrating. She joined the Aam Aadmi Party in 2020. Aam Aadmi Party chief and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal had also campaigned for her in Kharar. On the counting day, Aam Aadmi Party maintained its lead in the early trends which continued till the last. Anmol Gagan Mann got a total of 78067 votes. 

Aam Aadmi Party emerges as the single largest party in Punjab by winning 92seats out of 117 seats. This is the first time in Punjab’s history that a party won single-handedly after 25 years. Earlier, in 1997, the BJP-Akali alliance won 93 seats out of 117 seats. On the other hand, in the 2017 elections, Congress won 77 seats.

 Bhagwant Mann is set to become the new Chief Minister of Punjab. While AAP scored three-fourths of the seats, the Congress won 18, SAD 3, BJP 2, and BSP 1. An Independent also emerged victoriously.
