Kejriwal promises free JEE and NEET coaching in government schools; CM Channi calls Bhagwant Mann drunk and illiterate


school children if they are elected to power. Labeling a post about a similar movement initiated in Delhi, Kejriwal said “ye Punjab main bhi karenge (will do it in Punjab too).”

Punjab CM and Congress chief ministerial candidate for Assembly elections Charanjit Channi hit out at Bhagwant Mann on Wednesday, calling him a drunk and questioning his ability to lead the state after taking “three years to pass the 12th standard”. Mann is the CM face of the Aam Aadmi party in Punjab and has been involved in alcoholism-related controversies in the past. “Bhagwant Mann is a drunkard and illiterate. He passed the 12th class in three years. How can we give the command of Punjab to such a person? Channi was quoted as saying by ANI.

Meanwhile, Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) leader Sukhbir Singh Badal on Wednesday urged people not to trust the AAP and its leader Arvind Kejriwal, who only wants to deceive them with big promises of the same way former Chief Minister Amarinder Singh did earlier. The SAD Chairman made the comments while addressing public rallies in Dharamkot for Tota Singh and Nihalsinghwala for Baldev Singh Manuke.

The truth is that Punjabis gave Aam Aadmi party a chance in 2017 by electing 20 of its lawmakers and even made it the main opposition party in the state. However, instead of working for the welfare of Punjabis, 11 of its 20 legislators have joined forces with the Congress party. Now you can no longer trust AAP with your vote, he said. On promises made by the AAP, Badal said his election would mean the withdrawal of free electricity to farmers. Punjabis should be clear that the Delhi model meant that the free electricity facility enjoyed by farmers in the state would be withdrawn. The AAP will also not extend the social benefits launched by the SAD, including the old-age, “Aata-daal” and “Shagun” pension schemes, he said. He said that in Delhi, the AAP government does not give even one rupee to women as a welfare measure even though it has promised 1,000 rupees per month to women in Punjab. Badal said thousands of contract workers in Delhi had been protesting for eight years demanding regularization. I don’t understand how Kejriwal can promise regularization of contract employees in Punjab when he has publicly stated that employees don’t work if they are regularized, the leader said.

Claiming that the SAD alone represented their aspirations, Badal said that the SAD governments were responsible for all development in the state, whether it was the establishment of thermal power stations or the construction of roads. to 4 to 6 lanes, airports and irrigation facilities. The Congress party does not have a single achievement to its credit, he claimed, adding that Punjab CM Charanjit Singh Channi has also admitted this. He alleged that Amarinder Singh’s government from 2002 to 2007 only made repairs to national roads.
