The engagement day turned out to be even more special for Raghav, who is in charge of AAP affairs in Punjab, as the party's candidate, Sushil Rinku, won the Jalandhar Lok Sabha by-election on Saturday.

Sharing his joy, Raghav posted on Twitter, 'Naanke Jalandhar waleyan ne ajj da din mere layi hor vi special bana ditta. My naanka #Jalandhar has made this day even more special and memorable for me.'
