Awaaz-E-Punjab: Swinging between boats, looking for the best deal

Awaaz-e-Punjab, which had initially been formed as a “non-political” front, had on Monday said it will look at the prospects of forging an alliance with the Congress or the AAP, while ruling out the possibility of joining a fourth front.
A day after Awaaz-e-Punjab said it would look at a political tie-up to contest elections in Punjab, AAP said the Navjot Singh Sidhu-led front seemed to be “bargaining for the best deal”, while Congress said it would welcome them if their agendas match.
Punjab Congress chief Amarinder Singh said the party was not in contact with representatives of Awaaz-e-Punjab.
Independent MLA and member of Awaaz-e-Punjab Simarjit Singh Bains on Monday said the front will “look at the possibilities in the Congress and the AAP to see which party has a strong agenda for Punjab and which can look after the state’s interests. After that, we will take a decision on forging an alliance with either of the parties to contest the assembly polls on a common minimum agenda.”
However if they wish to seek support from AAP then Amrinder Singh called it ‘taking support from outsiders.’
