During his tour, the national convener will meet party volunteers, workers, including those who are ‘angry over not getting party tickets’, amid ‘growing voices of rebel’ and allegations of exploitation of women which could threaten to derail the party's prospects in high-stake 2017 Assembly polls.

"He will meet volunteers, observers, workers. He will also meet those who are unhappy over not getting party tickets. He will hear out anyone who has any grievance with the party," said AAP's Punjab Co-convenor and MLA Jarnail Singh.

"He wants to say that he is in Punjab and do not worry. If you have any problem or grievance, I am here to listen to you," Singh said.

The visit of the Delhi Chief Minister assumes significance as the AAP was facing ‘crisis’ after Chhotepur was removed as party's Punjab Convenor for allegedly accepting money on the basis of a sting video.

Significantly, the formation of 'Awaaz-e-Punjab' front by cricketer-turned-politician Navjot Singh Sidhu along with MLA Pargat Singh and two Ludhiana MLA brothers Simarjit Singh Bains and Balwinder Bains may also be a concern for the AAP.

The Delhi Chief Minister will stay at the house of party's volunteer at Jhande village in Ludhiana from September 8 till 10. There, he will meet volunteers and party workers in Ludhiana.

On September 11, Kejriwal will interact with doctors and teachers in Patiala. And the same day, he will launch party's farmers' manifesto at Baghapurana in Moga.
