BHAGWANT MANN WINS ELECTION

MOHALI:  Aam Aadmi Party’s Bhagwant Mann, possibly the party’s tallest leader in Punjab, had a huge smile on his face as he voted in Mohali this morning. Asked by NDTV whether he would be the chief minister if his party came to power in the state, the stand-up comedian-turned-politician said, “I am very happy to vote today… don’t put words in my mouth… The people already know.”

In a bold prediction, Mr Mann, 44, also claimed that the Aam Aadmi Party is poised to win over 100 of Punjab’s 117 assembly seats.

“There is very good atmosphere. We will win over 100 seats. Majha, Malwa, Doaba (the three regions of Punjab)… all. I was in Majha yesterday, before that I was in Jalalabad, before that Doaba… On March 11 at 11 am, you will say the new government is Punjab is of the Aam Aadmi Party,” Mr Mann told NDTV.
