Kejriwal denies reports, says Punjab Chief Minister will be from Punjab

Tribune News Service

Patiala, January 11

After speculation that Arvind Kejriwal could be the Punjab Chief Minister with Manish Sisodia pitching for votes in his name, Kejriwal on Wednesday made it clear that the CM of Punjab would be from Punjab itself.

Addressing a rally here, Kejriwal said he was the Chief Minister of Delhi and had huge responsibility.

However, he said that who ever is made the Punjab CM, it will be his personal responsibility that all promises made by the Aam Aadmi Party were fulfilled.

He said they could make him personally accountable for the affairs in the state.

He mocked Sukhbir Badal, saying he woke up thrice yesterday night after nightmares about him being Punjab Chief Minister.

Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Sisodia, on his first day of campaigning in Punjab, on Tuesday reportedly urged people in Mohali and Anandpur Sahib to cast their ballot for the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) “as if they are voting for Arvind Kejriwal as Chief Minister”, triggering a Punjabi versus “outsider” debate.
