Aam Aadmi Party's (AAP) state convener Sucha Singh Chhotepur will soon set out to garner support of large Punjabi diaspora scattered across the globe for the party.

"Once I get my visa, I will launch the campaign," said Chhotepur, added that it was his personal plan. His decision comes days after senior Congress leader and Amritsar MP Amarinder Singh said he is planning to visit foreign countries in September-October to attract NRIs' support.

Political parties are trying to woo the Punjabi diaspora as they feel that the community can play a significant role in 2017 assembly polls.

Delegations of Akalis led by ministers are touring various countries where sizable number of Punjabis is settled. Chhotepur also claimed that leaders from various political parties are keen to join AAP.

"Leaders from various parties have expressed willingness

to join AAP. Some big names would be in the party fold in the next six months" he said.

He rejected reports suggesting internal conflict in AAP and of the party forming an alliance with Manpreet Badal-led People's Party of Punjab.
