Chandigarh, December 8

The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) today announced its third guarantee to the people of the city —world-class security and free 24x7 Wi-Fi facility across the city.

The party had earlier announced two guarantees if elected to power in the Municipal Corporation. The promises made earlier were to provide 20,000 litre of free water to each household and clearing all garbage dumps, including the waste at the dumping ground in Dadu Majra.

Addressing a press conference at the headquarters of the city AAP in Sector 39 today, Chandigarh affairs in-charge of the party and Delhi MLA Jarnail Singh, while citing a report of the National Crime Records Bureau, stated that women in the city were the most vulnerable in the country in 2019.

“Under a world-class security plan, we promise to install CCTV cameras in inner and outer areas of the city so that the girls/women can remain safe round the clock,” he said.

Referring to the Delhi model, he claimed that the Arvind Kejriwal government was the only government in the country to have installed 1,826 CCTV cameras every one and a half kilometres for women’s safety. “Also, all dark areas of the city will be illuminated with a hi-tech lighting system so that no women can feel unsafe and can move freely anywhere anytime,” Jarnail Singh added.

Poster boy Kejri among 10 star campaigners

  • City AAP’s poster boy Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal will campaign during the local Municipal Corporation elections. He is among the 10 star campaigners who will canvass for the party.
  • Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia, Rajya Sabha members Sanjay Singh, ND Gupta, Punjab AAP president Bhagwant Mann, Leader of Opposition Harpal Singh Cheema, Delhi MLA Atishi Marlena and Punjab Youth Congress president Anmol Gagan Mann are also the star campaigners who will visit the city.
  • “We are making a plan for their visits. These leaders will tell people about the works done in Delhi and will spell out our agenda for the MC poll,” said city AAP convener Prem Garg.
