The AAP on Tuesday said Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal won't be the Punjab Chief Minister, hours after a remark by AAP leader Manish Sisodia asking people to vote for the party "thinking Kejriwal is the Chief Minister" drew widespread flak.
The Aam Aadmi Party leadership came in for sharp criticism from the Shiromani Akali Dal, the Congress and the BJP for the "secret wish" of Kejriwal to head Punjab if the AAP is voted to power.
Kejriwal is the party's face in Punjab and this doesn't mean he will be its Chief Minister if the AAP wins, the party said.
AAP leader Atishi Marlena told CNN that Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Sisodia's remarks on Kejriwal being the CM face in Punjab were twisted out of context.
"He (Sisodia) said vote as if Kejriwal is going to be the CM. He did not say Kejriwal will be the Chief Minister. He is the face of AAP and that is the face the people of Punjab are looking at," Marlena said.
