Aam Aadmi Party convener Arvind Kejriwal announced on Sunday that MP Bhagwant Mann would be contesting against Punjab Deputy CM Sukhbir Singh Badal in the upcoming state elections. The Delhi CM took to Twitter to announce the decision. “Bhagwant Mann will fight election against Sukhbir Badal,” Kejriwal tweeted after addressing a rally at Jalalabad where he made the announcement.

43-year-old Bhagwant Mann said that he would take up any role the party assigns him. Apart from Sukhbir, he also challenged state Congress chief Amarinder Singh to contest against him in Jalalabad.

The MP was elected to the Lok Sabha from Sangrur in 2014. Recently he had been in news for doing a Facebook live video of Parliament proceedings. His act was strongly criticised by various political leaders who accused him of compromising with the security situation of the Parliament. Speaker Sumitra Mahajan had asked Mann not to attend parliamentary proceedings till the probe against him had completed.

“I am clear I never intended to put the Parliament’s (security) in danger. I had tendered my unconditional apology. But despite that the panel was formed and it means my apology was not accepted,” he had said.

          Even a pygmy would defeat Sukhbir in the ensuing elections. People of Punjab are fed up with his party and its ally, the BJP
