Will name CM candidates for state polls ahead of Congress, BJP: Arvind Kejriwal in Punjab

New Delhi/IBNS: Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) supremo Arvind Kejriwal on Tuesday said that his party will announce its chief ministerial candidates for the upcoming state elections before the Congress or the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).

"All political parties declare their CM candidates closer to the date of elections, either close to or after the model code of conduct is enforced," he said at a press conference in Punjab.

Kejriwal also took a dig at the Congress and BJP over questions about his party's chief ministerial face.

He assured the audience that his party would declare its CM faces before all other parties.

Kejriwal launched "Mission Punjab", his party's election campaign for the state, from the Moga district on Monday.

Earlier in the day, the Delhi CM interacted with a large group of auto drivers and even accepted a dinner invitation from one of the attendees.

Punjab CM Charanjit Singh Channi had also met auto-rickshaw drivers on Tuesday morning and announced waiver of all pending challans for them.
