On education he said that the situation of education in Punjab is poor. “Like in Delhi, we will improve education in Punjab,” he said.

“We will make such a prosperous Punjab that the youth who went to Canada for employment will return in the next five years,” he said.

Punjab Assembly elections will be held on February 14 in the second phase of elections in five states. Counting of votes will be held on March 10.

Kejriwal has been campaigning extensively for the Punjab elections. However, the Election Commission has prohibited any political rally till January 15 in view of increasing Covid-19 cases.
