Bhagwant Mann warns MLAs against indulging in malpractices

Addressing the first meeting of the AAP Legislature Party, Mann said AAP government would be run from villages, wards and mohallas to “ensure governance on people’s doorstep.” He cautioned the MLAs against pursuing vendetta politics.

Comment: After victory, burden of proof now on AAP

“We will introduce people-oriented schemes. Some guidelines will come from Delhi. We will study welfare schemes in other states and implement these in Punjab,” he said. Earlier in the day, Mann met party convener Arvind Kejriwal in New Delhi for “detailed discussions” on government formation. The meeting was attended by Delhi Deputy CM Manish Sisodia, Health Minister Satyendar Jain and AAP in-charge of Punjab affairs Raghav Chadha. —
