The Lok Sabha elections 2024 in Punjab were a shocker for the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), who could not score even a single seat in the state. Even as compared to 2019, where BJP scored 2 seats. Conversely, Congress Party won the maximum 7 seats, while Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) managed to nab 3. Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) managed to win 1 and 2 independent candidates won.

Earlier, BJP has always fought elections in Punjab in alliance with Akali Dal. This time BJP decided to contest the elections alone, costing them heavily. The result was that while BJP had won 2 seats in the 2019 elections, this time it could not win even a single seat. On the other hand, Congress-AAP contested elections across the country under the INDIA alliance, but in Punjab both the parties were fighting separately. Congress had won 8 seats in the 2019 elections also forming the government in Punjab.

AAP had got 1 seat in 2019. In this election it increased to 3. In the 2022 assembly elections, AAP got 92 out of 117 seats. Despite being in government in the state, AAP's result was very low. AAP was running here with a mission of 13-0. However, the most shocking result was on 2 constituencies. Independent candidate and Khalistan supporter Amritpal Singh won from Khadoor Sahib seat and independent candidate Sarabjit Singh Khalsa won from Faridkot seat. Akali Dal (SAD) only managed to win one seat, that too in Bathinda by Harsimrat Kaur Badal. Conversely, SAD had won 2 seats in 2019.
