New Delhi, April 25: Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) supremo Arvind Kejriwa on Thursday released party’s Delhi manifesto for the 2019 Lok Sabha election.
The vision document which primarily focuses on prioritising Delhi was released at the party office in the presence of other AAP leaders including Manish Sisodia, Gopal Rai and Sanjay Singh.
The 35-page manifesto titled ‘Le Kar Rahenge Purna Rajya’ promises to secure “full statehood” for the national capital.
“With full statehood, several dreams of the people of Delhi will be realized. Women safety will considerably improve. Law and order in Delhi will improve. Youth will get jobs. Every child who has scored more than 60 per cent marks in 12th standard will get a college admission. Sealing will be stopped in Delhi. Every Delhi resident will have a house of his/her own. Unauthorized colonies will be regularized. Delhi will be a clean and beautiful city. Delhi will accelerate towards the path of development,” the Delhi Chief Minister said in a message.
In the manifesto, the party said both the BJP and Congress have been avoiding the question of complete statehood for Delhi.
“Their reason being that they did not have their government in the Delhi Assembly. The truth is that there have been opportunities when they had their government both at the centre and in Delhi. But they did not take effective steps to give full statehood for Delhi. Even today, the stance of BJP and Congress is not favourable towards granting full statehood,” the manifesto states.
“The AAP is fighting the Lok Sabha elections in Delhi with the sole objective of making Delhi a full state,” it added.
