Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) convener and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal here today unveiled the party’s 51-point youth manifesto for the 2017 Assembly polls, terming it “for the youth, of the youth and by the youth”.

The manifesto, prepared by the party’s Punjab Dialogue Committee — headed by veteran journalist Kanwar Sandhu — promises to end the drug menace in a month, revamp education and end unemployment.

Addressing a gathering, Kejriwal said the ‘vision document’ was a commitment to the youth to make Punjab corruption-free, pass the Jan Lokpal Bill, crack down on the drug scourge, overhaul governance and revive the dying industry. He said the committee had finalised the manifesto after incorporating inputs from youngsters across the state.

Kejriwal, who started a three-day tour of Punjab by paying obeisance at the Golden Temple and Durgiana Temple here, claimed that AAP would win at least 100 of the 117 assembly seats in the state.

Addressing a rally, he said if his party came to power, those responsible for the desecration of Quran and Guru Granth Sahib would be behind bars within a month.

“Why has the name of Naresh Yadav cropped up in the sacrilege case just a day ahead of my Punjab visit? The SAD is playing dirty politics,” he said. “First Amarinder looted Punjab, then the Badals did it,” he added.
