Puri said that the BJP is contesting on all Lok Sabha seats in Punjab on its own for the first time after a long time and expressed confidence in the party receiving a positive response in the elections. "BJP is contesting on all the seats in Punjab. Earlier we never contested more than 3 Lok Sabha seats. This time we will contest all Lok Sabha seats and Assembly seats.

But we will definitely bring him again and all the projects will be implemented as promised," Hardeep Singh Puri said while speaking to reporters in Punjab's Ferozepur on Monday.
