Aam Aadmi Party formally announced on Wednesday that party convener Arvind Kejriwal would begin his week-long tour of Punjab on February 20, during which he would meet the families of farmers who had committed suicide due to economic distress, AAP leader Sanjay Singh told Hindustan Times.

Earlier in the day, the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) welcomed comedian Gurpreet Ghuggi into the party fold, a day after the Congress roped in Punjabi singer Balkar Sidhu.

Joining AAP in the presence of Sanjay Singh and other senior state party leaders, Ghuggi said, “I have always been a political satirist and now the time has come for me to contribute to Punjab in a practical way. I am immensely impressed by Arvind Kejriwal’s practical politics.”

“This is the party that performed well in Delhi in its one-year rule which prompted me to make up my mind to join it,” he added.

Jalandhar-based Ghuggi began his career as a Punjabi actor in Jalandhar Doordarshan. He has also worked in many Bollywood flicks apart from working in Punjabi film industry.
