No other party knows how to improve govt schools: Kejriwal says in Punjab


Amritsar: One of Delhi Chief Minister and Aam Aadmi Party national convenor Arvind Kejriwal’s promises to poll-bound Punjab is that his party will improve government schools in the state, just like they did in Delhi.

“We will improve Punjab govt schools just like we improved Delhi govt schools; only we know how to do it, no other party does. I guarantee to resolve multiple issues of teachers on an emergency basis,” he was quoted as having said.

Kejriwal was in Amritsar to campaign for the party in the state.

News agency ANI further quoted Kejriwal as saying, “Even after 18 years of experience, Punjab teachers only get a minimum of Rs 10,000 as their salary. In Delhi, even unskilled labour’s minimum wage is Rs 15,000. All the teachers working in outsourcing and are contractual will get permanent.”

Taking a dig at Punjab CM Charanjit Singh Channi, Kejriwal said, “Punjab CM Channi promised to provide free electricity, nothing yet. He talked about mohalla clinics, there’s not even one. He promised to end corruption, nothing happened. Now he has promised to end all challans for auto-drivers, let’s see.”


Don’t want to take Congress’s garbage: Kejriwal

During his address in Amritsar, Kejriwal claimed that several MLAs and MPs from ruling Congress in the state were in touch with his party, but would not be inducted as AAP did not want “to take their garbage”. “If we start doing that, then I challenge you that 25 Congress MLAs would join us by evening,” he said.

Kejriwal has been campaigning aggressively in Punjab and has also been visiting Uttarakhand and Goa, which will go to polls around the same time as Punjab.

A day earlier, he promised Rs 1,000 per month to every adult woman in the state if voted to power.
