Amritsar: Aam Aadmi Party national convener Arvind Kejriwal and Punjab CM designate Bhagwant Mann to hold victory roadshow in Amritsar to mark the party's victory in Punjab polls.

Earlier, Kejriwal reached Amritsar with Delhi Education Minister Manish Sisodia. Mann and Kejriwal offered prayers at Durgiana Temple, ahead of their roadshow in the city. Also, both leaders paid floral tribute at the Jallianwala Bagh memorial. 

During the rally, Mann said "We've decreased the security of 122 people and due to that 403 police personnel and 27 police vehicles have returned to the police stations. No government office will have CM's photos but will have pictures of Shaheed Bhagat Singh and Babasaheb Ambedkar".  

Kejriwal said, "For the first time after so many years, Punjab has now got an honest Chief Minister. Now all the money will be spent on Punjab and its people. We will fulfil all the guarantees and make a 'Rangla' and happy Punjab".  

Mann to take oath on March 16. Mann has invited the party's national convener and Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal for the swearing-in ceremony. Last week, Mann met Kejriwal in New Delhi.

This comes after the Aam Aadmi Party’s resounding victory, winning 92 seats out of the 117 seats, in the Punjab Assembly Elections.

The oath-taking ceremony would be held at Khatkar Kalan, the ancestral village of legendary freedom fighter Bhagat Singh in the Nawanshahr district. He claimed that the people of Punjab had defeated the arrogant people and blessed the Aam Aadmi Party.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi held a similar roadshow in Ahmedabad a day after winning four assembly elections.
