AAP government will ensure safety of every person and businessperson in Punjab: Arvind Kejriwal
Says AAP government will make Punjab safe and drug-free by stopping cross-border smuggling and drones
Ludhiana/Chandigarh, February 15, 2022: Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) national convener and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal promised that the Aam Aadmi Party government will ensure the safety of every person of Punjab, irrespective of their religion or caste. Kejriwal said that there is an atmosphere of fear among the people of Punjab due to the sacrilege and bomb blast incidents in the past. People are worried about their safety.
Giving an example, Kejriwal said that yesterday a man came to me and said, “I am a Hindu. There is a lot of concern about security in my mind these days. The incidents of sacrilege are disturbing. I and my family are scared.” Kejriwal said that due to the pathetic condition of law and order, frequent incidents of sacrilege and dirty politics of Congress-BJP on the matter of Prime Minister's security, has increased the fear among the people. “In view of all these incidents, today I want to assure all the individuals and businessmen of Punjab, whether they are Hindu, Sikh, Muslim or Christian, that the AAP government will take responsibility of the security of 3 crore Punjabis. In the AAP government there will be no concern about the safety of all the people. AAP government will be responsible for the security of every individual, every trader of Punjab,” said AAP national convener.
On how the relationship with the central government will be after the formation of AAP government in Punjab, Kejriwal said that our government in Delhi has many differences with the Modi government in centre. Despite this, we always supported the central government on the issue of security of the country and welfare of the people. Even during the Covid, we tried to work in coordination with the Centre and saved the lives of lakhs of people of Delhi from Corona virus. When Aam Aadmi Party government is formed in Punjab, for the betterment of Punjab, we will fix the relationship with the central government and work in coordination.
On the issue of smuggling of drugs and drones from across the border, Kejriwal said that we will stop the infiltration, drug smuggling and drones across the border by guarding Punjab's (international) border. Kejriwal said that only an honest government is needed to make Punjab safe and drug-free. If an honest government is formed, Punjab Police will work with full sincerity and dedication and will ensure the safety of Punjab and its people.
Arvind Kejriwal said that the previous Congress and Akali governments were dominated by corruption and mafia. Money and bribe was involved in the transfer-posting of police officers. Therefore, it was their (Police personnel) compulsion to give exemption to drug mafia, sand mafia and other mafias. The government of Aam Aadmi Party will work with complete honesty. We will not let them take any kind of weekly money from people or ask any share from them. Then this same Punjab Police will take action against criminals, corrupt and mafia and will make law and order strict. The AAP government will give strict punishment to all the culprits and masterminds by conducting a fair and independent investigation into all the incidents of previous sacrilege, so that no one can dare to commit such a crime.
