Bathinda, October 29

Alleging rampant corruption, crime and inspector raj in Punjab, AAP national convener and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal today said their government would rid the state of criminals, the corrupt and mafia if voted to power in the 2022 Assembly elections.

“After April 1, the AAP government will be responsible for the safety of every trader and businessman,” said Kejriwal during a programme with traders. Kejriwal said after April 1, 2022, the responsibility of security of every trader would rest with the AAP government. The AAP national convener said traders and businessmen were living in a state of fear. “How will businesses thrive in such an environment?”

There was a need for businesses to flourish so that youth could get employment. An environment free from crime and corruption would be created in Punjab, he promised businessmen.

Seeking their cooperation, Kejriwal urged the business community to become partners in the “honest” AAP government. “Unlike other parties, we have come not to take money from traders but to seek their cooperation and participation in governance,” he said.

AAP state president Bhagwant Mann said: “Governments consider traders, arhtiyas and industrialists as thieves, while they are the ones who pay highest taxes. The businessman will gladly pay taxes to an honest government since he knows he or his family will eventually benefit from the taxes.”
