Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) candidate from Jalandhar parliamentary segment Jyoti Mann faced some tough questions during her maiden press conference on Sunday after the announcement of her candidature.  


Mann (27), a teacher, was fielded by the AAP after the controversial exit of previous candidate Rajesh Padam from the constituency, which is witness to a high-stake battle between SAD’s Pawan Kumar Tinu and his Congress rival Chaudhary Santokh Singh.

During the press conference, the AAP candidate appeared confused, apparently lacking vision for the city. Mann, however, claimed that she would work on the national agenda of her party which focuses on eradication of corruption from the system. At times, she was seen asking other members of her party to comment on issues.

AAP district secretary Himanshu Pathak said Arvind Kejriwal would be in the state from April 10 to 13.
