CHANDIGARH: Delhi chief minister and national convener of Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) Arvind Kejriwal put at rest the speculations on him being the party’s chief ministerial candidate for Punjab as he said that the chief minister of Punjab would be from the State itself.
The speculation was triggered following statement by Delhi deputy chief minister Manish Sisodia at a gathering in Mohali on Tuesday calling upon people to vote for Kejriwal who, he claimed, would solve all their problems.
Addressing a rally in Patiala, Kejriwal said he was the chief minister of Delhi and had huge responsibility. “I am Delhi’s CM, Punjab’s CM will be from Punjab,’’ he said. However, he said that whoever is made the Punjab CM, it will be his personal responsibility that all promises made by the Aam Aadmi Party are fulfilled. He added that the party could make him personally accountable for the affairs in the State.
He mocked at Punjab deputy chief minister Sukhbir Singh Badal, saying he woke up thrice on Tuesday night after nightmares about the latter being Punjab chief minister. The AAP is seeking to wrest power in the State where the BJP-SAD combine has been at the helm for last ten years.
