Arvind Kejriwal promises to give Rs 1,000 per month to every woman in Punjab if AAP forms government in state | Chandigarh News – Times of India

NEW DELHI: Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal on Monday said that the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) will provide Rs 1,000 per month to every woman in Punjab over the age of 18 if it wins state’s upcoming assembly elections.
Kejriwal, speaking at a party event in Moga, Punjab today, said, “If we are elected to power in Punjab in 2022, we would provide Rs 1,000 per month to every woman above the age of 18 in the state. Each of the three female members of a family will receive Rs 1,000.”
Kejriwal calls this announcement “world’s biggest women empowerment programme”.
“In Punjab, a fake Kejriwal is roaming. Whatever I promise here, he repeats the same. In the entire country, only one man, Kejriwal, can bring down your electricity bill to zero. So beware of that fake Kejriwal,” he said.
In view of the 2022 assembly elections, Kejriwal began his two-day visit to Punjab to launch his “Mission Punjab”.
While addressing media in Amritsar, Kejriwal said that he will visit Ludhiana where he will talk to auto drivers.
On Tuesday, Kejriwal will attend the party’s program after addressing a press conference in Amritsar.
In the 2017 Punjab Assembly polls, Congress won an absolute majority in the state by winning 77 seats and ousted the SAD-BJP government after 10 years.
AAP had emerged as the second-largest party winning 20 seats in 117-member Punjab legislative assembly. The Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) could only manage to win 15 seats while the BJP secured three seats.
