Prashant Kishor, one of the key strategists of the Congress which is on its way to winning Punjab, today said the Aam Aadmi Party was one the toughest competitors his team has faced. Arvind Kejriwal's AAP, which had contested in Goa and Punjab in a bid to go national, is leading in only 23 of the state's 117 seats - the third position in a three-cornered contest - according to data at 4 pm. The Congress, which had been out of power in the state for a decade, is leading in 76 - way above the 59 seats required for majority in the assembly.
