Kejriwal was scheduled to visit Goa earlier this month but cancelled after testing positive for Covid.

The AAP leader previously toured the poll-bound state, promising to implement a corruption-free governance model if the party is elected.

In addition, Kejriwal has promised to increase the Griha Aadhar allowance in Goa from Rs 1500 to Rs 2500 per month.
