Badals, Amarinder never paid heed to woes of border area: Kejriwal
AAP national convener and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Sunday alleged that Punjab Congress chief Amarinder Singh and the Badals had “ruined border districts” of the state by not paying heed to their genuine woes.
“Agro-based industry is need of the hour, especially in Punjab’s border districts to support peasantry and general employment for the youth. The AAP Government is committed to do so,” he said while campaigning in border areas here.
“Even the industrial units that shifted from Punjab due to apathy of the SAD-BJP government will be brought back with tax incentives and a pre-condition that 80 per cent of the jobs should be given to Punjabis,” Kejriwal said. If AAP forms government, special economic package will be announced for special development of border areas, the Delhi Chief Minister said. He claimed that all “false cases” under NDPS Act filed by Badals against innocent youth, who opposed the drug mafia, will be cancelled.
AAP will create a special task force of senior doctors within six months for de-addiction of youths and create 25 lakh jobs to bring them back into main stream, Kejriwal assured, claiming there are about 40 lakh people addicted to drugs.
