    AAP Punjab drive: With the Assembly elections tussles heating up to boiling point again, Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal released the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) Manifesto - titled Youth Manifesto - on Sunday. The key aspects of the manifesto touched upon almost all Punjab pain points including rampant drug menace, unemployment, and sorry state of education in the state. Clearly, AAP Manifesto was targetting the Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) government led by Parkash SIngh Badal in which the BJP is a significant partner. Kejriwal said that the SAD-BJP govt was a failure and people must remove it. Here are the top 10 key takeaways from the AAP Manifesto:
