Punjab Lok Sabha Election Results 2019 

The Congress is set to improve its tally in Punjab to eight seats, while the SAD-BJP combine and the Aam Aadmi Party are heading for four and one seats, respectively.

The Congress won in Amritsar, Faridkot, Anandpur Sahib, Jalandhar, Khadoor Sahib, Ludhiana, Fatehgarh Sahib and Patiala seats.

The Shiromani Akali Dal, which was looking to resurrect itself in the polls following the backlash over the issue of desecration of religious scriptures, registered victory from Ferozepur and Bathinda seats. While SAD chief Sukhbir Singh Badal won from Ferozepur, union minister Harsimrat Kaur Badal won from Bathinda for the third time. 

The BJP took the Hoshiarpur and Gurdaspur seats. Actor-turned-politician Sunny Deol beat state Congress chief Sunil Jakhar in Gurdaspur. In Hoshiarpur, BJP candidate and former bureaucrat Som Prakash emerged victorious.

The Aam Aadmi Party appears to be decimated in Punjab as it held only Sangrur seat, where the party's state chief, Bhagwant Mann held on to his seat.
