Bhagwant Singh Mann, AAP's MP from Sangrur, is also a professional comedian. Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) national convener and Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal has named Bhagwant Mann as the party’s chief ministerial face for the upcoming assembly elections in Punjab, who will contest from Dhuri seat. In May 2014, Mann became the MP for Sangrur constituency, Punjab. Bhagwant Mann is the only member of parliament from the Aam Aadmi Party in the lower house (Lok Sabha) of the parliament. Born into a Sikh family, Mann also performs skits in the Punjabi language. He is a comic poet with political satire in it. In early 2011, Mann joined the People's Party of Punjab. In 2012, he unsuccessfully contested elections in the Lehragaga constituency. Mann's political journey took a turn after he joined Aam Aadmi Party in 2014 to contest elections in the Sangrur Lok Sabha constituency and won by 211,721 votes. Mann was also the convener of AAP Punjab but resigned after Arvind Kejriwal tendered an unconditional apology to Bikaramjeet Majithia over the drug mafia case. In 2017, Mann contested elections in Jalalabad against Sukhbir Singh Badal and Ravneet Singh Bittu. He lost the elections to Badal by 18,500 votes. Mann had an alcohol addiction and had been often found drunk during parliamentary sessions. His alleged problems with alcohol became a huge controversy ahead of the 2017 Punjab elections. However, he does not have any criminal records against him. In 2019, to handle this controversy AAP held a rally at Barnala, where he swore not to touch alcohol again. And later in the 2019 Lok Sabha election, Mann won again from the Sangrur constituency by 111,111 votes.read more
