In the video tweeted by the AAP leader, he said: "On 16 March, in Khatkar Kalan, the oath ceremony will take place. Not just me, the state's 3 crore plus population will take oath with me. We will together carry forward the legacy of freedom fighter Bhagat Singh. I won't be taking the oath alone. All of you will take the CM's oath. This will be your government." Khatkar Kalan is freeedom fighter Bhagat Singh's ancestral village.

"To encourage your brother, please come at 10 am at Khatkar Kalan," the AAP leader said and then made a request. He asked the women to wear saffron dupattas and men to wear saffron turbans. Saffron holds a religious significance for the Sikh community. "We will paint Khatkar Kalan saffron that day.

The video was shared by Arvind Kejriwal too. In hindi, the Delhi chief minister wrote: "Punjab will become Rangla Punjab again. The dreams of Bhagat Singh will come true. The whole Punjab will take oath with my younger brother. I am participating ... you too please come."

The AAP has registered a magnificent win in the state polls with 92 of 117 assembly seats. The Congress was voted out of power and managed to get just 18 seats.

In the AAP win, another highlight was the defeat of bigshots who have served as chief ministers- Parkash Singh Badal, Amarinder Singh and Charanjit Singh Channi.
