CHANDIGARH: Aam Aadmi Party’s (AAP) senior leader and Sangrur Member of Parliament (MP) Bhagwant Mann will take over the reins of Punjab unit in Chandigarh here on January 30 (Wednesday).

Mann will be formally installed chief of Punjab unit at a simple ceremony in the presence of Deputy Chief Minister of Delhi and in charge (Punjab affairs) Munish Sisodia.

The decision to reinstall Mann as Party chief comes close on the heels of the party’s Core Committee unanimously rejecting his resignation and forwarding its decision to the National Political Affairs Committee (PAC) for review last week. It may be recalled Mann had resigned the post following the apology controversy.

Among others who are likely to be a part of the installation ceremony include, besides others, Members of Legislative Assembly (MLAs), members of state Core Committee, state executive committee and officials from various wings.
