Kejriwal’s guarantee card to remain priority for new govt

Kejriwal’s guarantee card to remain priority for new govt

New Delhi, February 16

The “Kejriwal ka Guarantee Card”, released by the Aam Aadmi Party chief Arvind Kejriwal in January ahead of the Delhi Assembly polls, will be the top priority for the newly formed government.

Kejriwal and six of his ministers took oath on Sunday and the party leaders said they would focus on the 10 guarantees promised by the Aam Aadmi Party to the Delhiites.

Among the guarantees was the promise to reduce air pollution in Delhi. "We will plant over two crore trees to make Delhi green," the card reads.

The first ‘guarantee' by Kejriwal is about electricity, which promises the continuation of 24-hour uninterrupted power supply and 200 units of free electricity for all. "The city will be freed from the web of wires and electricity will reach each household through an underground cable," the guarantee card says. The Aam Aadmi Party promised 24-hour pure piped drinking water to each house in the next five years and said the scheme of providing 20,000 litres of free water will continue.

The third guarantee is to give a world-class education facility to each child in Delhi. The card also promised better health facilities for all as the fourth guarantee.

Kejriwal's fifth guarantee is to have the "biggest and cheapest" transport facility for the city. "More than 11,000 buses will be on the Delhi roads and the Delhi metro will have more than 500-km stretch in the city," the card says. The government will also work to improve the last mile connectivity. Kejriwal also said on the lines of free bus travel for women, students' travel will also be made free. — IANS
