Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) Punjab president Bhagwant Mann on Friday said if his party wins the Assembly elections in the state, his government would not tolerate corruption, hooliganism, and dictatorship in Punjab.
Addressing a press conference in Chandigrah, Mr Mann said, “AAP government would not tolerate corruption, hooliganism, and dictatorship in Punjab. Revenge and deliberate harassment of opponents is not part of the party’s ideology and AAP is committed to make Punjab a prosperous, developed and peaceful state,” he said.
Mr Mann further said that every child in the state is born with a debt of Rs 1 lakh on his head as there is a debt of Rs 3 lakh crore on the state.
“Today Punjab has a debt of over three lakh crore and Punjab has a population of three crores. Thus every Punjabi has a debt of one lakh on his head, meaning every child born in Punjab is being born under debt. The wealth of the ruling families of Punjab and the leaders of Congress, BJP, and SAD was steadily increasing,” he said.
Mr Mann further stated that after the formation of his party’s government in the state, the government treasury would be filled.
“After the formation of Aam Aadmi Party government in Punjab, the government treasury will be filled and along with fulfilling the guarantees given by party chief Arvind Kejriwal, Punjab will get rid of debt of over Rs. 3 lakh crore,” he said.
Mr Mann said that AAP has a comprehensive plan for the overall development of Punjab.
