NEW DELHI: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal will visit the family of BSP founder Kanshi Ram in Punjab on his birth anniversary on March 15.

This will be the AAP chief's second visit to the assembly poll-bound state which has a sizable Dalit population, in a fortnight.

Party sources said Ram's family invited the AAP chief to their village. The BSP founder was born in Pirthipur Bunga village of Punjab.

"He has been invited by the family of Kanshi Ram and villagers of Bunga. So, he will be visiting them on March 15, Ram's birth anniversary," said an AAP leader.

The elections in Punjab are slated for early next year.

The party has four MPs, all from Punjab.
