Bhagwant Mann of AAP set to be the next Punjab CM

Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) is all to create history with a landslide victory in Punjab. And in a big mandate for AAP, its CM candidate Bhagwant Mann has won from Dhuri by over 45,000 votes. The Aam Aadmi Party is all set to make history and storm into power in Punjab, leaving behind political heavyweights Congress, BJP and key local player, Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD). Trends available at 1 pm showed the ruling Congress, SAD-BSP combine and the BJP-PLC-SAD (Sanyukt) alliance appeared to be decimated.

Bhagwant Mann was born on October 17, 1973, to Mohinder Singh and Harpal Kaur at Satauj, Sangrur, Punjab. Before he embarked on his political career, Mann was a comedian, and quite popular too. It was before the internet took over the world but Mann often hit the right note with his comic timings and participated in youth comedy festivals and inter-college competitions. His rustic Punjabi humour connected with political satire made him a popular name, even before he took part in a popular comedy show on television.
