New Delhi: Delhi Chief Minister and Aam Aadmi Party national convener Arvind Kejriwal will commence his five-day visit to Punjab from Thursday to take stock of poll preparations of the party there.

The Delhi Chief Minister will stay in Punjab till February 29.

News agency PTI has quoted party sources as saying that the Aam Aadmi Party chief will emphasise on holding people-to-people meeting rather than mega rally in Punjab.

The party is pitted against Congress and the ruling SAD-BJP combine.

 

The AAP has been raising its voice against the issue of drug addiction and farmers suicide and alleged irregularities in buying pesticides.

After having made its presence felt in the state during the Lok Sabha elections, the AAP had recently made structural changes in the state unit, which irked many in the party.

The AAP had opened its account in Lok Sabha by winning four seats in Punjab in 2014 General Elections.

 

However, two of its MPs - Dharamvira Gandhi and Harinder Singh Khalsa - have been suspended on the charge of anti-party activities.
