Chandigarh: Delhi Chief Minister and AAP National Convener Arvind Kejriwal said on Wednesday said that the party would announce its chief ministerial candidate for Punjab next week. 

Kejriwal, who is in Chandigarh for a two-day visit, said, “We will announce AAP’s CM candidate for Punjab next week.”

“We assure people of Punjab to improve law and order situation in state. We will ensure justice in all previous incidents of sacrilege if AAP comes to power. Security will be ensured to all, be it PM or anyone else. Name of CM’s face will be announced next week,” said AAP chief Arvind Kejriwal in Chandigarh.

 

This time, Shiromani Akali Dal has joined hands with BSP and BJP is contesting elections with former Punjab CM Captain Amarinder Singh’s Punjab Lok Congress and Shiromani Akali Dal (Sanyukt) in the state. 

Last week, the Election Commission of India announced the schedule for the upcoming assembly elections in the five states- Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Goa, Manipur and Punjab. The assembly elections will take place in 7 phases from February 10 to March 7. The Punjab election is scheduled for February 14 and the result will be announced on March 10. 

In the 2017 Assembly election, the Congress party won the polls, securing 77 seats of the 117 total constituencies. AAP had emerged runner-up, winning 20 seats. Akali Dal had won 15 seats and its alliance partner BJP in 3 seats.
