Today is the second day of AAP's three-day roadshow across Maharashtra ahead of the Lok Sabha polls, beginning next month. Mr Kejriwal cancelled his public meeting in Chandrapur Lok Sabha constituency due to ill health.

"Kejriwal was unable to travel to Chandrapur as planned due to ill health. The meeting will be conducted under the leadership of Anjali Damania along with Raju Bhise, Vijay Pandhare and Pratibha Shinde," the Aam Aadmi Party state office said in a statement.
