Nakodar (Jalandhar):With the final countdown for Punjab Assembly Election 2017 results, Aam Admi Party (AAP) on Sunday formally launched the campaign against drugs and deployed its candidates and volunteers across the state to collect data on drug victims and de-addiction centres.
Led by senior AAP leaders including Sanjay Singh and Durgesh Pathak, party candidates unveiled the road map to counter drug menace in Punjab, which was one of the key promises in the AAP manifesto. “The agenda outlined by AAP National Convener and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal in election manifesto would be implemented in Punjab”, they said.

Sanjay Singh while addressing the volunteers said that he was overwhelmed by the support of people of Punjab and said confidently, “AAP would be forming government in Punjab with a thumping majority.”
Meanwhile, Sangrur MP Bhagwant Mann said that big victory of AAP would bring bigger responsibility with it. “But, we will celebrate our victory, when we would be able to end the miseries of all sections of society, be it the poor farmers, unemployed youth or dalits.”
