Hissar: Aam Aadmi Party will contest the Haryana assembly elections slated for October 2019. Addressing ‘Haryana Bachao Rally’ in Hisar, Delhi chief minister and AAP convener Arvind Kejriwal announced that the party will contest the forth coming elections of Haryana assembly.
Sounding the poll bugle, Kejriwal also promised to implement the Swaminathan Committee recommendations for welfare of the farmers in the state. He also took the opportunity to hit out at the Bharatiya Janata Party and Congress, saying that the condition of government schools, government-run hospitals and other government facilities in the state have deteriorated with every passing year.
“I grew up here. My father was an employee. I completed my studies here. The condition of government schools at that time was bad; now it has only worsened”, Kejriwal said.
As per Hindustan Times report Kejriwal also invited the people of Haryana to visit Delhi to see how the state of government schools and health facilities have improved since AAP came to the power.
“Political leaders like former chief minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda, and ruling CM Manohar Lal Khattar are too busy trying to gather votes by spreading riots in the state,” Kejriwal said.
“I was told by farmers that the Haryana government fixed Rs. 4,000 as minimum support prize (MSP) for mustard. But so far the government has failed to purchase even a single seed of mustard.” Kejriwal added.
The AAP convener said that the recent condition of farmers, students, businessmen and women in the state is extremely poor and only 10,000 youths have got government jobs so far.
