Aam Aadmi Party has begun savouring the taste of failure in barely six years of its existence. With its political existence nearly fragmenting AAP is giving its desperate last shot to hold on to relevance. The senior party leader, Bhagwant Mann, who is representing AAP party from Sangrur Lok Sabha seat in Punjab, in this pursuit, took to the streets of Punjab before the last phase of 2019 Lok Sabha elections.
However, Bhagwant Mann during his roadshow on May 14, in Benada village, Punjab was greeted with black flags and hooting. Nevertheless, the leader of the AAP, who by now has mastered the art of making a fool of himself, stood on his car and started doing the Bhangra (the Punjabi folk dance). He reportedly showered flowers at the protestors who waved black flags during his road show.

Notably, Benada village has been adopted by the AAP leader and locals there were miffed as they claimed that he has not carried out any development work in the village since the time he has extended his support to them.
Somehow, such resentment is not new for the Aam Aadmi Party. The party chief, Arvind Kejriwal on Monday was greeted with similar black flags as the Aam Aadmi Party convenor launched AAP’s election campaign in Punjab. He was reportedly doing a roadshow for Bhagwant Mann.
Asking him to return, protesters shouted slogans against him for maligning the image of the state over drugs.
Meanwhile, AAP has been lately coming across as a complete non-performer. The party’s recent desperation to remain in power has pushed them to such drastic levels that Bhagwant Mann had indicated that the party is willing to dissolve and merge with Congress party. Moreover, Delhi Chief Minister Kejriwal has also been literally pleading with Congress to form an alliance in Delhi, as he is aware of the fact that he alone can not defeat the BJP in the Lok Sabha elections, which had won all the seven seats in 2014.
In fact, the recent political scenario shows that, however, hard the AAP might be trying, it has lost the charm it had enjoyed five years ago. With most of its distinct forces abandoning the party, the citizens too, have decided to shun the party, which has no underlying ideology except deceit and drama.
