The Indian Express reported that Arvind Kejriwal’s mega roadshow will begin at 6pm, after which, he would visit the Golden Temple. It added that Amritsar was chosen as the AAP national convenor and wanted to go to the Golden Temple on his first visit to Punjab after coming out of the Tihar jail.

Kejriwal is expected to address several rallies and take out roadshows in Punjab along with Bhagwant Mann ahead of Lok Sabha elections.

In his first joint election campaign with the Congress, Arvind Kejriwal held two roadshows for the Congress candidates at Jahangirpuri and Model Town in Delhi on Wednesday.

Kejriwal will hold roadshows in support of Congress candidates Jai Prakash Agarwal from Chandni Chowk, Udit Raj from North West Delhi, and Kanhaiya Kumar from North East Delhi, according to the Delhi Congress.

Congress and AAP are in a 3:4 seat-sharing agreement in Delhi. Notably, the AAP and Congress “mutually agreed” to go solo in Punjab, but are a part of INDIA bloc and are fighting in alliance in Delhi.

According to the seat-sharing agreement for Lok Sabha elections between the INDIA bloc members in Delhi, the AAP is contesting four seats while Congress has fielded candidates in three constituencies.
