IEP Walsaad (Gujrat), October 9
Punjab Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann today asserted that ‘Acche din’ had never came in Gujarat but ‘sacche din’ will be there with formation of honest AAP government in the state.
Addressing a massive rally here today, the Chief Minister said that though the ‘Achhe din’ are still a delusion but the ‘Sachhe din’ will come in Gujarat after AAP will form an honest government in Gujarat. He said that a development oriented government will come in Gujarat after the polls. Bhagwant Mann said that this government will cherish the aspirations of all the freedom fighters in the state.
The Chief Minister further said that people of Gujrat had borne BJP for more than 27 years in dearth of any substitute but now winds of change are blowing in state. He said that in last 27 years development has taken a backseat in Gujarat adding that it unfortunate that the state with budget of Rs 2.50 lakh crore has a debt of Rs 3.50 lakh crore. Bhagwant Mann said that people of Gujarat are paying tax even while sleeping whereas the friends of BJP are plundering this money.
The Chief Minister said that Gujrat will break record of Punjab and Delhi by giving whopping majority to AAP in the state. He said that people are anxiously waiting for showing door to BJP from Gujarat. Bhagwant Mann said that in December AAP will form pro-people government in the state.
Taking the BJP leaders to cudgels the Chief Minister said that they people have been opposing freebees to people whereas they have extended largesse to their friends. He said that these leaders and their coterie have mercilessly looted Public money. However, Bhagwant Mann said that it is strange that these leaders oppose the pro-people initiatives of AAP.
Describing Congress as ‘B’ team of BJP, the Chief Minister said that saffron party has purchased Congress MLAs in many states. He said that this is murder of democracy but Congress leaders have not opposed this matter on any ground. Bhagwant Mann said that the day is not far when Congress will open offices in the country with the tag ‘MLAs on sale’.
The Chief Minister said that this is unfortunate that Congress and BJP have connived with each other to make a mockery of the democratic values. He said that these leaders have plundered the money of country far more mercilessly than even what the Britishers had done. However, Bhagwant Mann categorically said that people are supreme in democracy and they will not tolerate this.
Citing several pro-people initiatives of the state government 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.
The Chief Minister further said that 100 Aam Aadmi clinics have been opened in Punjab for imparting quality health services to people. He said that in similar way the schools are being transformed into schools of imminence. Bhagwant Mann also said that 600 units of free power are being given to every household in Punjab.
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. Bhagwant Mann appealed the people to vote for AAP to carve out a vibrant and progressive Gujarat.
