After the third phase of polling for the Lok Sabha seats, Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) national convener Arvind Kejriwal has moved into Punjab a confident man.

Saying there was no "Modi wave" in any part of the country, he claimed that the people had turned out in large numbers only to vote for "aam aadmi" (common man), whose sole mission was to root out corruption.

"The high voting percentage in Delhi and other places is in our favour. There is no Modi or any other wave," said Kejriwal on Friday, as he led the AAP road show through the streets and markets of the holy city. His candidate for this seat, eye surgeon Dr Daljit Singh, and Supreme Court lawyer HS Phoolka, who is contesting from Ludhiana, flanked him.

"A surgeon and a lawyer, who had never imagined entering politics, joined us to cleanse the dirty political system. If common man does not come forward, the system will remain corrupt," said the AAP convener, as he alighted from his open jeep outside the historic Ram Bagh Gardens, starting the day's campaign of road shows in Amritsar, Tarn Taran, and Batala.
