Punjab Election 2022: Arvind Kejriwal says let people decide CM-face of AAP
Kejriwal stated that while he floated the notion of portraying Bhagwant Mann as the AAP's chief ministerial face, the later stated that the people of Punjab should pick who the CM of their state is.
Arvind Kejriwal, Delhi Chief Minister and Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) convenor, stated on Thursday that the AAP's chief ministerial face should be decided by the people.
Speaking at a news conference in poll-bound Punjab ahead of the 2022 Punjab Assembly elections, Kejriwal stated that while he floated the notion of portraying Bhagwant Mann as the AAP's chief ministerial face, the later stated that the people of Punjab should pick who the CM of their state is.
Bhagwant Mann, according to Kejriwal, is like a younger brother to him. He stated that he nominated Mann to be the CM face for the Punjab Assembly elections, but Mann stated that the people of Punjab should determine this. Kejriwal further stated that the people of Punjab should choose the CM-face of AAP in Punjab, and that voters may register their choice of Punjab CM face for AAP on a toll-free line.
He also issued the phone number - 7074870748 - to solicit the Punjab population's preference for the AAP's Punjab CM face. According to Kejriwal, the phone line would be available till 5 pm on January 17. He stated that this is happening in India for the first time since 1947, when a party is asking the public to vote on who should be the CM face. "My personal preference is unimportant; public preference is," he continued.
Kejriwal went on to say that AAP is emerging as the largest party in several surveys performed to estimate which party should gain the most votes in the forthcoming Punjab Assembly elections. "It is pretty certain that the AAP will be elected in Punjab. I'd want to ask all of my volunteers to offer one last push. I'd want to ask Punjab citizens to vote in large numbers. "Instead of 60 seats, we should win seats above 80," he continued.
