Chandigarh, Feb 10: AAP National Convener and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal is likely to visit Punjab from February 20 for about 5 days during which he will meet the families of farmers who committed suicide due to debt.

"Kejriwal is expected to visit Punjab on February 20 and will be in the state for 4-5 days," Aam Aadmi Party's national organisation-building head, Durgesh Pathak said.


"He will visit villages and districts of the state and meet families of debt-ridden farmers who have ended their lives. Kejriwal will also meet the families which are victims of drug menace," senior AAP leader and in-charge of Punjab Affairs, Sanjay Singh said.

The full programme of Kejriwal's Punjab visit, will be finalised in a day or two, he said. The Delhi Chief Minister was the state last time on January 14 when he held a massive rally in Muktsar on the occasion of Maghi Mela, kicking off AAP's campaign for the 2017 Assembly polls.

Yesterday, AAP had announced it would launch 'Punjab Dialogue' next month to seek people's opinion on various issues in the state and incorporate them in their election manifesto.
