The Delhi government’s decision to make Punjabi compulsory in government schools in Delhi had nothing to do with the coming assembly polls in the state, the AAP said on Friday.

Aam Aadmi Party legislator Saurabh Bhardwaj said the development was just a “coincidence”.

“I believe different states keep going for elections at different times. It’s just a coincidence that Punjab elections are next year,” he told the media outside the Delhi assembly.
