The victory of BJP& SAD in Punjab Vidhan Sabha results in 2012 surprised political analysts, because in the past in every elections power used to change, but SAD won fair margin of seats and made the government of alliance. The strength of the alliance is the unity symbol of Punjab where as BJP is the party with the ideology of Hindutav & Hindu Nationalism and SAD is purely a Sikh political party, the ideology of SAD is Punajbiyat , Punjabi Nationalism, and Sikhism.
Population of Punjab
Sikhs are the major part of Punjab’s population with 16004754 in numbers nearly 58% of the total population and Hindus are 10678138 in numbers out of 2,7700000 of the total population of Punjab 21% are Jat Sikhs 10% Majhabi Sikhs. Hindu communities are Brahmin, Khatri, and Baniyas etc.
Factual position of unity
BJP& SAD alliance gets the full credit of re-establish the faith in Hindus and Sikhs for each other’s communities. Punjab came back to its rich culture, but the economical status has come down. Inter- caste marriages between Hindus and Sikhs started like in the past before 1980. Relations Friendships between the populations of both the communities are a common factor these days all due to the SAD& BJP alliance. The interesting thing is BJP have Sikhs in the party as political candidates and workers and on the other side, SAD have Hindus in the party as political candidates and workers. Now people and political leaders talk about Punjabis instead of Sikhs or Hindus, both communities enjoy langar parsad in Gurudwaras and sing bhajans in temples, they have made real Punjab.
