Chandigarh: With SAD-BJP alliance retaining
power in Punjab, Shiromani Akali Dal president Sukhbir Singh
Badal has called a meeting of the party`s newly-elected
legislators on March 8.

The newly-elected MLAs of the party would meet at 10 am in
Chandigarh on March 8 while the party`s core committee would
meet at 6 pm on the same day, SAD spokesman Daljit Singh
Cheema said.

Bucking the anti-incumbency trend, the SAD (Badal) won 56
seats while its alliance partner BJP got 12 seats, taking the
combine`s tally to 68 in the 117-member Assembly in the
results declared today.

The Congress, which was banking on anti-incumbency factor
to ride to power, won only 46 seats, only marginally higher
than the 42 it got last time. Three others were won by
independents.
