Aam Aadmi party announced 10 promises including clean drinking water, repair of roads, installation of street lights and CCTV in Jalandhar west

Jalandhar: Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) started its election campaign on Saturday for the Jalandhar West Assembly by-election. The party released its 10 promises for the by-election and claimed victory by saying that the public will vote only for the party that works.

Cabinet Minister Kuldeep Singh Dhaliwal and AAP MP from Sri Anandpur Sahib Malvinder Singh Kang released the manifesto of 10 promises on behalf of the party in a press conference with AAP candidate Mohinder Bhagat in Jalandhar. AAP MLA Raman Arora, Pawan Kumar Teenu, who was the party’s candidate from Jalandhar for the Lok Sabha elections, were also present in the press conference.

On this occasion, Aam Aadmi Party Punjab’s Chief Spokesperson and MP Malvinder Singh Kang said that the Aam Aadmi Party always contests elections on the basis of its work. We will also contest this election on the basis of Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann’s public welfare works.

He said that the Mann government has made a lot of improvements in every sector during the last two years. Today, 90 percent of the families in Punjab are getting zero electricity bills. The fields are getting canal water and farmers are being provided sufficient electricity during the day for farming. The government has given government jobs to about 43000 youth during two years without any bribe and recommendation. Strict action is being taken to curb all kinds of mafia. At the same time, the AAP government is giving an ex-gratia of one crore rupees to the families of the martyrs.

Kang said that this election is between corrupt and fraudsters versus honest and capable people. We are confident that the public will teach a lesson to the betrayer in this election. He said that this election is happening due to the betrayal with the people.

He said that AAP candidate Mohinder Bhagat is a very educated and intelligent person. His family has been serving the people of Jalandhar for two generations. His father Chunni Lal Bhagat did a lot of good work for the development of Jalandhar and Punjab while being the Municipal Corporation Minister.

Cabinet Minister Kuldeep Singh Dhaliwal said that Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann himself will now stay in Jalandhar. This will give the people of the entire Doaba a chance to meet the CM and tell him their problems. He said that this election will be fought under the leadership of Chief Minister Mann and we are confident that due to the historic work done by the Mann government for the development of Punjab in the last two years, we will win this election by a huge margin.
