Arvind Kejriwal has been making regular visits to Uttarakhand for the last couple of months and visited poll-bound Uttarakhand on November 21. He had earlier visited Uttarakhand on August 17 and September 19, where he promised to make Uttarakhand the 'spiritual capital' of the country.
Meanwhile, he is also scheduled to visit Punjab on November 22. According to reports, he is expected to make big announcements in Punjab states as well ahead of the Assembly elections. During his two-day visit to Punjab, the Delhi Chief Minister will visit Moga district on Monday where he is mooted to meet actor Sonu Sood’s sister Malvika Sood. The Aam Aadmi Party chief will be visiting Amritsar on Tuesday, where he will hold a press conference. He had visited Punjab's Sangrur and Bhatinda last month and interacted with the local farmers.
