Arvind Kejriwal, Bhagwant Mann meet farmers in Punjab CM’s constituency

Chandigarh, January 14

Aam Aadmi Party convenor Arvind Kejriwal and party’s Punjab unit chief Bhagwant Mann met some farmers in Punjab Chief Minister Charanjit Singh Channi’s constituency Chamkaur Sahib.

In a short video of the meeting released by the party on Friday, Kejriwal and Mann are seen sitting on a cot placed in the mustard fields and interacting with some farmers.

In the video, Mann asks the farmers if they have got payment for the cane crop and the peasants reply that it has not yet been cleared.

“Did you not get payment for your produce for two years?” Kejriwal then asks the farmers.

Another farmer tells the AAP leaders that a number of youth of the area are unemployed.

“So, this time are you going to bring a change (bringing AAP to power)?” asks Kejriwal during the conversation with peasants.

“We are with you..,” an elderly farmer tells Kejriwal, and the Delhi chief minister tells him that they only need their support.

Punjab goes to polls on February 14 and the AAP is eyeing to wrest power from the ruling Congress.

Kejriwal was on a two-day visit to the northern state which concluded on Thursday during which he also campaigned door-to-door, ruled himself out of the race as the party’s CM face, as the AAP launched its ‘Janta Chunegi Apna CM’ drive a day earlier and said the name of the candidate for the top post will be announced after getting the feedback of people.
