Religious factions and elections

It is evident that the relatively new political parties particularly the politico-religious ones have been picking up on areas that the major parties have missed out on. It is probably one of the reasons that these groups have surfaced with a new sense of zeal and have managed to attract the attention of a greater number. Although, most of these new and religious parties lack concrete manifestos or plans for the times ahead, they can very well change the outcome of the polls for others involved,  especially in Punjab, where TLP and other such parties have received a welcoming response.

Regardless of who makes it to the throne next time, vote bank of the mainstream parties is going to get affected due to few of these seasonal groups.
