Arvind Kejriwal to kick-start Punjab campaign on Jan 14

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal will kick-start his Punjab campaign by addressing a mega rally in Muktsar next month, as the party gears up for polls in the state scheduled to be held in 2017. He is also expected to spend a considerable time in Punjab from next year, party sources said. The party is pitted against the Congress and the SAD-Akali Dal combine. “I will address a mega rally in Muktsar in Punjab on January 14,” Kejriwal said. The party, which is yet to project any chief ministerial candidate, is banking on Kejriwal’s image to wrest power in the state. In October, Kejriwal had visited Punjab, which was hit by protests due to desecration of Guru Granth Sahib. The party has been raising its voice against the problem of drug addiction and by raising issues related to farmers’ suicide and alleged irregularities in buying pesticides.
