The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) is all set to begin its Jan Chetna Yatra against corruption in Punjab from Jallianwala Bagh here on Friday.

The march will end at Anandpur Sahib on May 23 after covering 22 districts. Addressing the media here on the eve of the big journey, AAP state convener Sucha Singh Chhotepur said the state was being misruled. "Our mission is to generate awareness against corruption, drug menace, and lawlessness," he added.

Referring to the Moga bus horror, the AAP leader said: "The incident has brought shame upon the state. The chief minister should decide what he wants to run - the state or the family business empire."

Pamphlets, posters, and public addresses would be the tools of this mass-contact and feedback programme that will also highlight the government's "failures on the agricultural front".

The AAP state convener said the party's focus was on Punjab, because the state was going through tough times. "The BJP is party to all the bad decisions of the Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD), and ground is ready for us to contest all 117 assembly seats in the 2017 elections," Chhotepur claimed.

Asked about infighting in the party and why a section was unhappy with him, the leader said: "It happens at times that differences emerge, but we are confident that everything will be in place in a few days."
