Punjab Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann on Friday asserted that people of Gujarat will usher a new era of politics by collapsing the political fortress of the BJP, which has been in power for the past 27 years, and ensuing a landslide victory of Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) party in the upcoming assembly elections.
Addressing to a mammoth gathering at Panchmahal in Gujarat, Punjab CM Bhagwant Mann said that it is crystal clear that people of Gujarat have made up their mind to give mandate in favour of AAP by ousting BJP from the power.
He said that unnerved opposition is trying to malign AAP by dubbing it ‘B’ team of others but AAP is party of Gujarat’s people and 130 crore of Indians. AAP is spearheading to make India number 1 by cleaning the decade old filth in the system with their honest and pro-people approach.
Slamming BJP for the miserable condition of common man in the state, Bhagwant Mann said that the saffron party is responsible for plundering the wealth of the people.
The people were deprived of basic facilities like education and health. But now people are ready to teach a lesson to BJP and voters eager to outburst 27-year of dastardly regime in 27 minutes in the upcoming assembly elections.
Referring to massive wave of change in favor of the AAP in Gujarat, Punjab Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann said that repeating the history of Delhi and Punjab, common people of Gujarat will form the government of AAP with a landslide margin.
The Chief Minister said that the huge crowd in rallies was a testimony to fact that AAP will form government in Gujarat. He said that BJP has been baffled by massive response to the party in state.
Reiterating that AAP will eliminate corruption from the system after forming the government in the state, Bhagwant Mann said that foreigners ruled Indian for over 200 years but they would have also felt ashamed to witness that they could not match the loot what the ruling leaders are doing currently in the country.
Taking potshots at Congress for its MLAs shifting loyalty to BJP, Mann said that Congress party is not change but they are for exchange only. Their MLAs are ready to join other parties as they know ship of Congress is sinking in the country.
The Chief Minister said that at present the country is on the brink of political change and people are looking beyond traditional Congress and BJP parties. Earlier, there was no alternative to people but now they have a honest AAP party led by its solider Arvind Kejriwal.
He said that just like Delhi and Punjab, the wind of change is prevailing in this state too. AAP will clean up the filth spread in the political arena with a broom across the country including Gujarat.
Talking about the pro-people policies initiated by the Punjab government, the Chief Minister said that the state government has restored the old pension scheme for its employees, which was discontinued in 2004. Apart from this, six percent Dearness Allowance (DA) has been given to the employees so that the employees can be protected from the incessantly rising inflation.
Apart from this, several other pro-people initiatives of the state government taken in Punjab, the Chief Minister said that the state government has passed the ‘One MLA, One Pension’ bill which stipulates that each MLA will get only a single pension, instead of the earlier provision of permitting multiple pensions for every term. He said that similarly the state government has given more than 17,000 government jobs to the youth purely on merit basis. Bhagwant Maan said that the process to regularise 36,000 contractual employees in the state has also started and recently only the state government has issued notification for regularising services of around 9000 employees.
