Today, Delhi’s deputy CM Manish Sisodia and Punjab CM Bhagwant Mann reached Shimla, Himachal Pradesh, in order to announce the Aam Aadmi Party’s 5 guarantees for Himachal Pradesh. As speculated, the guarantees are totally focused on the education sector.
The five guarantees of Arvind Kejriwal, announced by Delhi’s deputy CM Manish Sisodia, are:
• Free and quality education to children
• Regularisation of temporary teachers and filling all the vacant posts
• Providing new government schools with good infrastructure and facilities like in Delhi
• Teachers would not be forced to do any other dury than teaching
• Private schools won’t be allowed to increase the fees arbitrarily
These 5 guarantees of Arvind Kejriwal, announced by Mr. Sisodia, are completely focused on the education sector of Himachal Pradesh. Since the start of the election campaign, the Aam Aadmi Party has been focusing on the bad conditions of Himachal’s government schools, questioning the current BJP government from time to time.
On the occasion, Punjab CM Bhagwant Mann slammed the Congress, BJP and the Akali Dal for ruining the crucial time and resources of Punjab for years. “This 5-5 term fix-match between the Congress and the Akali-BJP alliance, used to take place in Punjab too. But, I won’t blame the people, they had no other choice,” said CM Mann.
Speaking on corruption in Punjab, CM Mann further added, “You all will be shocked to know, due to the AAP government’s continuous actions against corruption in Punjab, the corrupt government officials are now trying to figure out what their actual salaries are! Because, till now such people used to get commission, but we have eradicated that corruption from all departments.”
The Aam Aadmi Party, after announcing these 5 guarantees in Himachal, has challenged the Congress and the BJP in the state, emerging as the third option for the first time.
