Chandigarh: A day after Punjab witnessed an
all-time high voter turnout of over 78 per cent for the
assembly election, top leaders on Tuesday met trusted aides and
party workers thanking them for their overwhelming support.

There was no time to relax for some leaders who had
criss-crossed the state`s length and breadth in a month-long
no-holds-barred election campaign.

An early riser, 84-year-old Chief Minister Parkash
Singh Badal started his day in his home constituency Lambi
from where he sought re-election.
The SAD patriarch met his supporters and talked to his
confidants expressing confidence that the SAD-BJP would return
to power in the state, one of his aides told PTI.

It was a hectic day for the Chief Minister who attended
a number of condolence meetings.

Later, he went to Sirsa, the home constituency of his
close friend and Haryana`s former Chief Minister Om Prakash
Chautala, to attend a programme there.

Badal`s son and SAD President, Sukhbir Singh Badal,
left for Delhi yesterday.

He will be spending some time there. His MP-wife
Harsimrat Kaur, who was also actively involved in party`s
campaigning, will be with him.

Punjab Congress chief Amarinder Singh, a Chief
Ministerial aspirant, there was no time to rest as he left the
state for electioneering in Uttar Pradesh.

"There is no time for any rest for Captain Sahab. He
will be busy campaigning in Uttar Pradesh. He also has to draw
up plans for his own state where we are confident of coming
back to power," an Amarinder`s aide said.
