New Delhi, June 10: The Delhi government's decision to make Punjabi compulsory in government schools in Delhi had nothing to do with the coming assembly polls in the state, the AAP said on Friday.

Aam Aadmi Party legislator Saurabh Bhardwaj said the development was just a "coincidence".

The opposition alleged on Friday in the assembly that the government was wasting money by advertising in other states.
