Historical past favours Congress, because the social gathering has stored its maintain on the seat for the longest time.

Since 1952, Amritsar Lok Sabha seat has been represented 12 occasions by the Congress whereas BJP nominees have represented it 4 occasions, together with three consecutive wins by then BJP chief Navjot Singh Sidhu.

With the Congress on the helm within the state, Puri faces an uphill job.

The Modi issue is the one hope because the outsider tag is the primary drawback for Puri.

The previous diplomat is a turbaned Sikh and may swap from English to Punjabi with ease. Nevertheless, he’s an city Sikh and the constituency is dominated by Jat Sikhs. To win, he should depend on city Hindu voters and the SAD’s Panthic votes.

In 2014, the competition between now Union finance minister Arun Jaitley and now Punjab CM Amarinder Singh had grabbed headlines.

Regardless of the ‘Modi wave’ throughout India in 2014 parliamentary elections, Amarinder polled 4,82,876 votes, whereas Jaitely polled 3,80,106 and misplaced by a margin of 1,02,770 votes.
