After faring poorly in Punjab Assembly election, Aam Aadmi Party’s newly-elected legislators will be meeting Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal at his residence on Wednesday.

Sources told India Today that all 20 AAP MLAs from Punjab would be in Delhi.

A decision on choosing the Leader of Opposition in Punjab Assembly is likely to be taken in this meeting itself.

  1. Being the second largest party in Punjab election, AAP will be the principle opposition to the Captain Amarinder Singh-led Congress government.
  2. Sources also informed that senior AAP leader and lawyer H.S Phoolka who won from Dakha constituency and former Congressman-turned-AAP MLA from Bholath constituency Sukhpal Singh Khaira were the frontrunners to be chosen as the leader of AAP legislators and Leader of Opposition in Punjab Assembly.
  3. Kejriwal-led AAP, which made its electoral debut in Punjab, was left stunned after it failed to win a significant number of seats in the state, especially in Malwa region.
  4. Despite AAP’s high-decibel campaign, the party came a distant second to Congress, which won the elections comprehensively with 77 seats.
  5. Senior party leaders and Punjab MLAs will also brainstorm about the reason behind their below-par performance and the way forward for the party in Punjab.
