The listed factors for loss of BJP in Punjab despite Modi wave are reported to be- failure to check drug trade, sky-rocketing sand and gravel prices, failure to enlighten people on property tax as a substitute of house tax, high building regularisation charges, delay in VAT refund to traders and interference of halqa chiefs in administrative functioning.
Both the State and Central leadership are in no mood of separation at this stage but the circumstances are leading towards it, as it could be seen from the ignorance of Punjab BJP leaders by Parkash Singh Badal, Chief Minister Punjab during his meeting with the PM all alone. Badal even did not bother to share the outcome of the meeting with the BJP.
The SAD-BJP alliance is not going well in the state and by not associating the BJP leaders while visiting the PM in Delhi, could further worsen the ties. A blame-war on each other is already going on between the alliance after the Lok Sabha elections.
Frankly speaking, it is too early to predict any split in the alliance, as after the dismal performance of the alliance, which bagged only 6 of the 13 Lok Sabha seats, BJP high command had formed a seven member fact-finding committee headed by former Punjab Minister, Balramji Dass Tandon.
The youth BJP leaders are in favour of break-up while there are also chances of better and fresh understanding between the two parties to save the alliance in order to keep pressure on SAD. However, the future of alliance now purely depends on the report of the fact finding committee.
