New Delhi, Sep 7 (IANS) Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal will begin on Thursday a four-day tour of poll-bound Punjab where he will release the AAP’s Farmers’ Manifesto, it was announced on Wednesday.

The Aam Aadmi Party leader will address a public rally in Moga on the last day of his visit before returning to New Delhi.

"Arvindji will leave for Punjab tomorrow morning. He will hold a Kisan Rally in Moga on September 11 and leave for Delhi the same day," an AAP leader told IANS.

This will be Kejriwal’s first visit to Punjab after the AAP removed its Punjab convenor Sucha Singh Chhotepur over issues of corruption.

Kejriwal will interact with AAP volunteers and members in Ludhiana who are said to be agitated over various issues, party sources said.

"Kejriwal will hear their problems and address them. His visit will certainly boost the morale of party workers," a source said.

Chhotepur on Tuesday accused the party’s Delhi leadership of selling tickets for the Punjab assembly polls to undeserving candidates for crores of rupees.

The AAP, which has denied his allegations, has emerged as a major player in Punjab where elections are due early next year.
