Punjab Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann on Monday congratulated party chief Arvind Kejriwal and workers after the Aam Aadmi Party was recognised as a national party.

The AAP was recognised as a national party while the Trinamool Congress, NCP and the CPI were stripped of the coveted status by the Election Commission on Monday.

"…congratulations to the dreams of AAP team captain Arvind Kejriwal ji…congratulations to crore of team members…hard work has paid off…eyewitness to AAP's revolution…Bhagwant Mann," said the Punjab CM in his tweet in Hindi. The AAP was formed by Arvind Kejriwal in 2012 and went on to sweep the Delhi Assembly elections in 2015 and Punjab in 2022.
