AAP leader and Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal apologised at the Golden Temple on Monday for gaffes used by the party that included equating a manifesto with the Guru Granth Sahib on the cover of the document alongside a picture of the holiest Sikh shrine.

Kejriwal performed ‘sewa’ (service) at the Golden Temple by washing utensils at its community kitchen.

“While releasing the manifesto, we inadvertently made some mistakes. To repent for those mistakes, we performed sewa today. We also paid obeisance at the Golden Temple,” Kejriwal said on Monday.
