Former Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh said that Congress will be wiped out from the state in the Assembly elections.
Speaking to reporters, Amarinder Singh, who left Congress and formed Punjab Lok Congress, said, "I am certain of winning Patiala. I think we will win the elections...They (Congress) live in a different world and will be wiped out in Punjab."
"Bhagwant Mann is an anti-national and he is supporting Arvind Kejriwal," said the Punjab Lok Congress founder after casting his vote in Patiala.
The former CM also said that his party is performing well and positive reports coming from the ground.
The state is witnessing a multi-cornered contest this time with Congress, Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), Shiromani Akali Dal-Bahujan Samaj Party alliance, and the coalition of Bharatiya Janata Party-former chief minister Amarinder Singh's Punjab Lok Congress party as key players.
