Aam Aadmi Party supremo, Arvind Kejriwal is all set to visit Amritsar and Kotakpura, days after two protesters were killed in during a protest against the alleged sacrilege of the Guru Granth Sahib.
AAP has been leading a fervent election campaign in the state for the 2017 assembly elections.
Senior party leader, Sanjay Singh, in-charge of the party’s affairs in Punjab, said that Kejriwal will visit the Golden Temple in Amritsar on Saturday and also meet the families of those who were killed and injured during police firing during protests in Kotakpura.
Punjab gave AAP four MPs during the 2014 general elections – the only seats that the party was able to win in the entire country. Punjab is where the party will contest any election post its emphatic win in Delhi where it won 67 of the 70 assembly seats.
AAP has been putting in substantial efforts in Punjab after it was announced that the party will be contesting elections in the state. The entire state unit was reshuffled. The party has also been holding rallies in the state regularly.
Earlier in the week, senior party leaders met the Punjab governor to look into the incidents of sacrilege of the Guru Granth Sahib and the alleged police brutality.
