Throne of power : political strategies to win elction

Who will ascend the throne of power in Punjab, what is the strategy of the parties to woo half the population?


Lohri, the traditional festival of Punjab. After the birth of a son or the marriage of a son in a house, the glory of the first Lohri is different, but over time, the traditions have also changed. Now the practice of pouring Lohri for daughters has also increased in Punjab. Large-scale work to improve the condition of the sex ratio in the state has also yielded good results, but there is still room for further improvement.


This time the Lohri of Punjab, coloured in electoral colours, is special, the improving horoscope of daughters and the increasing participation of women voters in the elections has given a new dimension to the desire of the leaders to touch the sky. Because they all know that when the procession of power goes on, only 'Putt' (son) will ride the horse. The reason for this is also clear because no party is fielding a woman in the election as the chief minister's face. That's why leaders are making big announcements focusing on half the population. He knows the power of women, also that without her blessings the struggle for power cannot be won. Somewhere half the population will also decide that 'Kaun Chadhuga Satta di Ghodi' in this struggle. Improved horoscope of daughters, women's participation in elections has made leaders make certain announcements to cultivate them.
