Aam Aadmi Party denied the rumours that Arvind Kejriwal, national convenor can be declared as chief ministerial candidate in Punjab Assembly elections next year.
“It is baseless. It’s all rumours. There is no substance in it. Kejriwal will not leave Delhi government,” AAP national spokesman Ashutosh told news agency PTI.

He added that AAP has not yet decided who will be the chief ministerial candidate for Punjab polls, and the party will decide whether to project someone for the post or not.
“We have not decided who will be chief ministerial candidate. We believe that the democratic process in due course of time will throw up a leader. We have many competent leaders and any of them can take up the responsibility,” he said.
“At the right time, the democratic process will throw a leader. Everybody is asking the question who will be the CM candidate in Punjab or Goa. Let the democracy decide.
“Whether to go with the face and contest election or go without a face, is the call that the party will have to take,” the AAP leader said.
“It is a matter of strategy whether we want to go ahead with the CM face or not,” he further said.
Besides Delhi, Punjab and Goa are going to be the main focus of Kejriwal said AAP Leader.
