Balvir Rajewal visited Delhi on Sunday and met Aam Aadmi Party leaders. This is also important because if the Aam Aadmi Party in Punjab forms an alliance with the political party of the peasant leaders then the problems of other traditional political parties may increase.

This is also important because the majority of farmers in Punjab are the ones who form the basis of every political party. The Akali Dal has always won because of the farmers but due to the recent black farming laws the Akalis have lost their base.

Apart from this, the Congress party is also very serious about the Aam Aadmi Party and the farmers’ organization. However, the Aam Aadmi Party has not yet made any statement regarding its alliance with the United Social Front. Another list of candidates has been released by the Aam Aadmi Party on Monday.

The Aam Aadmi Party has so far announced the names of more than 100 candidates. If the tax continues like this then a new alliance could be seen in the state before the announcement of Punjab Assembly elections. The Samyukta Samaj Morcha has paved the way for an alliance with the Aam Aadmi Party.

Samyukta Samaj Morcha chief Balbir Singh Rajewal has said that talks are underway with the Aam Aadmi Party for an alliance. “We cannot deny that we will not ally with the Aam Aadmi Party in the Assembly elections,” Rajewal said.

It is claimed that the Samyukta Samaj Morcha could win 20 to 35 seats if it forms an alliance with the Aam Aadmi Party. Leaders of the Samyukta Samaj Morcha have been reiterating that the Aam Aadmi Party is ready to withdraw the names of some of its candidates after the alliance.
