Delhi Chief Minister and Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) convener Arvind Kejriwal on Sunday said if AAP come to power in Gujarat, then every child in the state will prosper. Kejriwal along with Punjab CM Bhagwant Mann was addressing a gathering of youth in Ahmedabad.
“I was seeing a wonderful message being shared in a Gujarat WhatsApp group that I follow. It says if you vote for Congress, then Sonia Gandhi’s son will prosper. If you vote for BJP, (Union Home Minister) Amit Shah’s son will prosper, and if you vote for AAP, then every single child of Gujarat will prosper,” Kejriwal said.
The Delhi CM promised that if voted to power, the AAP would provide 10 lakh jobs in Gujarat by filling teachers’ posts in schools, opening new colleges and mohalla clinics, and providing more doctors and healthcare staff in hospitals, among others. He also promised an unemployment allowance of Rs 3,000 per month to youth.
Kejriwal claimed people have been voting for BJP because the “Congress is even worse,” but this time they have an alternative in AAP — “an honest party with fresh faces and new politics.” He said, “leaders of both the BJP and Congress have stolen so much of public money that if their properties are sold, then I believe the entire debt of Gujarat can be paid”.
Kejriwal said if the AAP comes to power in Gujarat, it will stop the “loot” carried out by leaders of the two parties. “Every single penny of Gujarat government will be spent on you,” Kejriwal told the gathering. He said the guarantee is applicable to all youth from the state, irrespective of the leaders and party they support. “The entire country is ours, the entire Gujarat is ours,” he said.
Kejriwal also targeted the Gujarat BJP government over cases of exam question paper leak and said if voted to power, the AAP government will investigate such cases. “We will ensure there is no paper leak in Gujarat. And if anyone dares, we will bring a law with a provision of 10 years imprisonment,” he said.
