New Delhi: Ahead of the Delhi Assembly polls scheduled on February 8, the Aam Aadmi Party came up with a list of promises to the electorate enumerated in what they call as 'Kejriwal ka Guarantee Card’. Prominent among the guarantees are free for students travel in public transport services and basic facilities for unauthorised colonies in the city.
Besides, the party assured continuation of the ongoing free water and subsidy on electricity policy in the guarantee card issued in the name of Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal.
The Guarantee Card launched on Sunday by the AAP consists of 10 guarantees, including a promise to reduce air pollution by three times. "We will plant more than two crore trees to make Delhi green," it said.
The first guarantee by Kejriwal is about electricity. He promises continuation of 24-hour uninterrupted power supply with 200 units free for all. "The city will be freed from the web of wires with the electricity reaching each household through an underground cable network," declared the chief minister.
Kejriwal assured students free travel on the lines of free bus travel for women.
Another guarantee of Kejriwal is to give a world-class education facility to each child in Delhi. He also promised better health facilities for all as his fourth guarantee. The fifth is to have the biggest and cheapest transport facility. "More than 11,000 buses and 500-kilometre metro stretch in the city are guaranteed," he said.
The sixth guarantee is curb on pollution and a promise to clean the Yamuna river. Overlooking the fact that garbage management comes under four civic agencies, the AAP went on to promise to make the National Capital garbage-free in the next five years.
And lastly, to make the city safer for women, Kejriwal said his government will deploy mohalla marshals.
