Addressing a meeting of city industrialists, the Delhi Chief Minister said Punjab has talent, skill and economy but "excessive government corruption", wrong policies, and mismanagement have brought industry to a "mess".

"The Akalis have ruined the state," he said and added his party was committed to rooting out the mess, if voted to power.

He reiterated the AAP government would check the drug menace and added those being arrested in drug cases were not the mafia or smugglers but the addicts.

Kejriwal sought people’s support for making Punjab a "drug and corruption free" and prosperous state. "If elections are held today in Punjab, AAP will win 100 out of 117 assembly seats but if held as per schedule i.e in 2017, then, with a little more hard work, AAP will be in
position to make clean sweep," he said addressing a rally at Chiheru village in Phagwara late last night.
