The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) will provide six services, mostly free, along the lines of Delhi if it is voted to power in Chhattisgarh, party chief and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said on Sunday.
“We will give free electricity, free magnificent schools like in Delhi where children of rich and poor study together, free hospitals and clinics, free bus travel for women, free holy trips to religious places for senior citizens and employment,” said Kejriwal at a rally in Bilaspur city.
He said while Chhattisgarh was rich in resources such as “forests, agricultural land, rivers, minerals” but the state was known only for scams.
“Before AAP, even Delhi was known for scams. Now, Delhi is known for its schools, mohalla clinics, hospitals, progress, development and prosperity,” the Delhi CM said.
Kejriwal targeted both the BJP and the ruling Congress at the rally. Although he did not name his Chhattisgarh counterpart Bhupesh Baghel, the AAP leader targeted PM Narendra Modi and repeated his education jibe at him.
“Demonetisation destroyed our country beyond repair. Did it end corruption or terrorism? Any educated person would never do demonetisation. India is a great country… should it not have a well educated PM?” Kejriwal said.
The AAP leader also targeted the PM over price rise and alleged there was “open loot” going on in the country.
