WHAT IT MEANS FOR KEY PO­LIT­I­CAL PLAY­ERS?

Hindustan Times (Amritsar) - - Punjab -

CONGRESS

A huge pos­i­tive for the rul­ing party be­fore the Lok Sabha polls. The mor­cha that looked like be­com­ing a po­tent plat­form for the anti-Congress po­lit­i­cal forces has ended rather tamely with the state gov­ern­ment’s two-pronged strat­egy of be­ing tact­ful yet firm work­ing in the end

SHI­RO­MANI AKALI DAL

The de­ci­sion to end the mor­cha is a re­prieve for the Akalis who have been un­der con­stant fire for their mis­han­dling of sac­ri­lege in­ci­dents and po­lice fir­ing on pro­test­ers in 2015. The mor­cha was de­mand­ing ac­tion against the Badals who have been ques­tioned by the SIT prob­ing the po­lice fir­ing and sac­ri­lege cases

AAP REBELS

Led by Bho­lath MLA Sukh­pal Khaira, AAP dis­si­dents got a huge boost af­ter their Oc­to­ber 7 march to Bargari to show sol­i­dar­ity with the mor­cha. But Mand’s an­nounce­ment to call off the protest is a damp­ener for them, com­ing just 48 hours be­fore their nine-day “In­saaf March” from Tal­wandi Sabo to Pa­tiala
