Few words about previous terms
Previously legislative Assembly Elections were held in 2012. It resulted in Govt making of Prakash Singh Badal. The Majority of the seats were won by the MLAs of Shiromani Akali Dal and BJP alliance.
Punjab which means land of 5 rivers has turned on its head since the Badal government came into rule. There are many social issues which are cramping the progress of the state. Drugs, Unemployment, drinking water crisis and many other issues have halted the progress.
There are a number of issues plaguing the state at present, prime among which are corruption, unemployment, drug addiction and receding water tables that may pose a serious threat to the state’s agriculture. The Revival of agriculture is a key issue which no political party has adequately addressed till now.
Since Punjab is known as the granary and the bread basket of India, its looming crisis in agriculture is not just a concern for the state, but the entire nation. According to studies, water levels have dropped by 10 meters since 1973 and the rate of decline is intensifying.
Creating employment opportunities and tapping the human capital are also two other challenges that the state must deal with in order to check the rising menace of drug addiction among the youth.
