Kejriwal will visit the state for a day on Tuesday and will also take stock of party's performance.

"They will meet volunteers, members, party supporters and take stock of the party’s performance in the state. The party units in the state will also be restructured after consulting the volunteers during his visit," said an AAP leader.

Senior party leader Manish Sisodia and AAP's MP candidate Jarnail Singh, who lost from the West Delhi parliamentary seat, will also visit the state along with Kejriwal.

The meeting assumes significance as the party is also aiming to repeat its success in the Lok Sabha polls.

After its dismal performance in national capital and country, AAP won four MPs from the state, springing a surprise not only to the party, but also to its rivals.

In the Lok Sabha election, its candidates trounced heavy weights like Union Minister Preneet Kaur, wife of Amritsar MP and former Chief Minister Capt Amrinder Singh from Patiala, a party bastion.

AAP garnered 24.4 percent of the total votes in Punjab and secured a lead in some 33 Assembly segments while coming second in 25 others.

It bagged two percent lesser votes than the ruling SAD, which got over 26 percent votes. Despite the high vote share of 33 percent, Congress managed to win only three seats while AAP and SAD have both won 4 seats each and the BJP bagged two seats with a vote share of 8.7 percent.
