    Delhi Elections: Check Out Arvind Kejriwal’s 10 Promises

    Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal will file his nomination on January 20th, 2020 from the New Delhi constituency

    Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on January 19th, 2020, promised a set of what he called a ‘10-point guarantee card’ to the electors ahead of the Delhi assembly elections. It guarantees free power, 24-hour drinking water on tap and world-class education to every child. Along with it, he promised a clean environment, including a clean Yamuna, and housing to every slum dweller.

    Addressing a press conference here this afternoon, Kejriwal said, “This is not our manifesto. This is two steps ahead of it. These are issues that affect the people of Delhi. The manifesto is on its way.”

    It needs to be mentioned that months after coming to power in his previous term with a record majority, Kejriwal government allowed free power and water – up to 200 units and 20,000 litres. The other big initiatives – free healthcare through neighbourhood clinics and a revamp of the city’s government-run schools — advance the winning formula, the party feels.

    This time, the party aims to bring down pollution by ‘300 per cent’ in the national capital since it has to face a high-level of pollution. The guarantee card also includes the planting of 2 crore trees and clean up the Yamuna.

    Kejriwal will file his nomination on January 20th, 2020 from the New Delhi constituency. Before filing the nomination, he will hold a roadshow from Valmiki Mandir to Hanuman mandir.

    It may be mentioned that the AAP had won 67 of Delhi’s 70 seats in the 2015 assembly elections. This time, his party is aiming to win all 70 seats. AAP has already named candidates for all 70 seats, fielding 46 sitting MLAs and 24 new faces. 

    The assembly elections in Delhi will be held February 8th, 2020.
