Punjab chief minister-elect Bhagwant Mann and Aam Aadmi Party chief Arvind Kejriwal held a mega roadshow in Amritsar today to celebrate the party’s landslide victory in the Punjab assembly polls. The leaders visited the Golden Temple ahead of the roadshow.

“The whole world is discussing you. The world is yet to believe that such a big inquilab (revolution) has come to Punjab,” Kejriwal said during a roadshow organised by the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) to celebrate its landslide poll victory.

“I am happy that after many years, Punjab is going to get an honest chief minister. My younger brother Bhagwant is fiercely honest. An honest government will be formed,” the Delhi chief minister said.

He said if a minister or an MLA of the party is found to be indulging in any kind of wrongdoing, he will be put behind bars.

“There will be a fiercely honest government,” Kejriwal said while targeting other political parties for allegedly looting the state.

“This loot will now be stopped. Every single penny from the government coffers will be spent on you, on the poor and on Punjab,” he added.

“We will start working from day one,” said CM designate Bhagwant Mann.

He reiterated that there will be no photograph of the chief minister at government offices and “only the pictures of legendary freedom fighter Bhagat Singh and B R Ambedkar will be put up”.

On the withdrawal of security of 122 former ministers and MLAs, Mann said 403 police personnel and 27 police vehicles are now back at police stations.
