New Delhi: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal will go to Punjab where Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) is gearing up for assembly elections before going to Bengaluru for a throat surgery to cure a chronic cough problem.

Reports said he will embark on a 4-day visit to Punjab starting from September 8 and will leave for Bengaluru on September 12.

The CM will undergo the surgery on September 13 and will take a 10-day rest there. He is expected to come back on September 22.

Last month, Kejriwal had attended a 10-day Vipassana session at a meditation centre in Dharmasala.

In January, he had undergone a 10-day naturopathy treatment for his cough problem at Jindal Nature Cure Institute, Bengaluru.

Deputy CM Manish Sisodia will look after the chief ministerial works in Kejriwal’s absence. He is also expected to visit Goa on September 7 for state assembly elections to be held next year.
