Mann's remarks came after his meeting with AAP convenor and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal to discuss issues related to Punjab Assembly elections.

"It was a positive meeting with CM. All the MPs and MLAs were present at the meeting. We had a detailed discussion on our blueprint for (Punjab) elections. We tried to focus on the old loopholes that caused backdrop and how we can overcome them this time," he said.

Mann further said, "We all have seen what all the other two governments did for Punjab. Unlike them, our focus is to see what good we can do for the people."

He also told, "Some big announcements would be made in next few days and a CM face for Punjab to be announced soon".
