Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader and deputy Chief Minister of Delhi Manish Sisodia on Tuesday address a rally in Punjab’s Mohali ahead of polls and urged people of the state to ‘vote as if Arvind Kejriwal will be the Chief Minister.’
“Punjab voters should assume that Arvind Kejriwal is going to be the Chief Minister of Punjab,” Sisodia said while addressing a rally in Mohali near Chandigarh.
Meanwhile, statement triggered angry reactions from opponents in the poll-bound state.
“By asking people to vote for Kejriwal as Punjab Chief Minister, Manish Sisodia has exposed their plans. It proves the AAP doesn’t trust Punjabis,” Sisodia’s counterpart in Punjab and senior Akali Dal leader Sukhbir Singh Badal said.
There were already speculations in place about Kejriwal moving to Punjab if the AAP manages to win its second state.
