Delhi Chief Minister and Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) convenor Arvind Kejriwal will on Sunday release a manifesto aimed at the youth of in Amritsar as he starts his three-day Punjab tour today.

Kejriwal will address a 51-point agenda with the gathering.
Since 30 percent of Punjab's population is of youth, the AAP has decided to target them first through their manifesto.
AAP's Punjab Youth Wing president Harjot Singh told media, "The manifesto is based on six youth dialogues and seminars. Besides drug menace, education, and unemployment, Kejriwal will speak on a lot of other issues. Normally, manifestos are released in closed rooms but the party has decided to take it in the open.”
AAP media secretary Surinder Kanwal said that the youth manifesto would be a commitment to the youth that if AAP won, all promised would be fulfilled.
Education and employment generation by promoting the stagnating small and large-scale industries in the state will also be part of the manifesto.
Prominent issues of women expected to be incorporated are security, friendly working environment, and equal work opportunity, according to The Tribune.
