Ahead of the 2022 Assembly polls in Punjab, Delhi Chief Minister and Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) National Convener Arvind Kejriwal on Thursday guaranteed quality education and an amount of Rs 1 crore to the family of the state’s soldiers killed in the line of duty, after the party comes to power in the state.
Kejriwal also guaranteed to pay “respectable salary” to the government school teachers in the state and said that his government will solve all of their problems. Addressing the ‘Tiranga’ rally here today, Kejriwal said, “It is my guarantee that after our party comes to power in the state, it will be the responsibility of the state government to provide free and quality education to the students of Punjab. We will construct as many schools as required and will renovate the current schools.”
“If any soldier from Delhi is martyred on the border, the family gets an amount of Rs 1 crore. Similarly, we will provide the same to the soldiers in Punjab,” he added.
“Our next guarantee is that we will pay a respectable salary to the government teachers and all of their problems will be solved,” said Kejriwal.
Talking about other guarantees that his party is giving to the poll-bound state of Punjab, he said that his government will provide free electricity up to 300 units to every household and build 16,000 Mohalla clinics in the entire state.
“Our first guarantee was on the electricity. Today electricity is very expensive in Punjab. We made it free in Delhi up to 200 units. We guaranteed that we will give free electricity to every family up to 300 units. We will ensure supply of electricity for 24 hours like the way we did in Delhi,” he said.
