CHANDIGARH, (Gurpreet) Former Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh today said that he accepted the verdict of the people with all humility as democracy triumphed.
He also congratulated the Aam Aadmi Party and its Chief Ministerial candidate Bhagwant Singh Man for an emphatic victory in the elections.
Capt Amarinder said, while winning and losing is the natural outcome of elections, at the end it was a victory of democracy in Punjab.
He congratulated Punjabis for rising above caste, sectarian and communal considerations and voting above any divisive lines. The Punjabis have shown the true spirit of Punjabiyat and shown the way to the country, he remarked.
