Punjab chief minister-designate Bhagwant Mann will meet Governor Banwarilal Purohit on Saturday to stake claim to form the government in the state. Mann was elected as the AAP Legislature Party leader at a meeting of the party MLAs in Mohali on Friday.

The Aam Aadmi Party swept Punjab in the recently-held Assembly polls, garnering over 90 seats, the best-ever performance by any party in the state. Mann is set to take oath as the chief minister of Punjab on March 16 at Khatkar Kalan, the ancestral village of legendary freedom fighter Bhagat Singh, in Nawanshahr district.
