Thanking the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) for giving him ticket from Amritsar (south) constituency, Dr Inderbir Singh Nijjar said he was restless by the current system and after seeing the leadership of AAP chief Arvind Kejriwal, he decided to jump into politics.

Dr Nijjar, who runs a scanning centre in Amritsar and joined the party last year was greeted congratulatory calls as soon as the ticket was announced.

The AAP leader, who claimed that he will start the campaign on Thursday itself, said the successive governments in Punjab have failed to perform and AAP was the best option for the people.

The 61-year old leader told the media that taking up the public issues will be his major focus in the south constituency.

He even maintained that Aam Aadmi Party will be forming the next government in Punjab, as people are fed up with the prevailing scenario and policies of the government.

On a question of joining politics, Nijjar said, “I was impressed by AAp’s working in New Delhi and wanted to contribute in bringing a change. But to change, we have to be in the system, so I joined.”
