No roadmap, AAP National Convenor promises to change the future of the state just by offering freebies befooling people like other traditional political parties.

Faridkot : Arvind Kejriwal, the AAP National convenor went all out to woo the women voters by offering just Rs 1000 per month financial help, which, he called, the one one of the biggest women enforcement in the world. Actually, short of any political roadmap in the election mode state, where the PM Narindra Modi has blunted the widely used tool to fool the Punjab people, of repealing the three farm laws in state assembly, political parties have now left out only to offer freebies.

Like congress, SAD and others, AAP too has no roadmap to provide the youth employment,good education,free of cost health and change crop pattern in the state, AAP too has nothing to offer the state except freebies and adopt polulist measures.

So pulling all stops to woo the women voters in Punjab, which is a decisive factor in the state, Arvind Kejriwal offered all the women Rs 1000 per month irrespective of any other benefit being taken by them as old age pension .

"I shall have the amount credited into their (all women)accounts which would help them in many ways," Kejriwal promised in the Moga rally.

But Kejriwal forgets what is the value of Rs 1000 per month for a woman as compared to the thousands of salaries and shooting prices where one has to pay for getting education and health apart from all other expenses.

Though the parents have to spend about Rs 1 lakh per head to get education for a girl studying above 10th in  private institutes as fees, transport and annual charges, where government promises mostly remain on paper,Kejriwal’s Rs 1000 per month to the women offering fin cial help even to go to college, buy clothes and blessing the married daughters by their mothers, is a cruel joke.

Instead, Kejriwal should have promised employment to the women to make them self reliant.

This is a clear shift of Kejriwal’s political ideology in which he had promised to change the politics when he had formed the AAP.

But now after the power bills, Kejriwal had happily clinged to the polulous politics.

“Though Rs 1000 per month is not a big amount, this is the first ever women empowerment in the world,” said Kejriwal in his public address in Moga in applause to the sounds of clapping.

“Earlier, the men influenced the women in the family to cast their votes, but now the women convince the family to cast their vote in favour AAP,” said Arvind Kejriwal in his speech in Moga.

Kejriwal also promised to generate the revenue by finishing sand and transport mafias in Punjab.

He termed Punjab Chief minister Charanjeet Singh Channi as a fake Kejriwal alleging that he imitated his promises and announced the same after two days.

This is a clear deviation of Kejriwal from the ideological politics which he claimed about 6 years earlier and embraced the populist measures.

This is the way the political parties want to wrest power in the state offering freebies and then loot the state for the next 5 years.

But on a ground level, the situation is totally different. Most of the women are not aware about their rights and political system in the state and even the women elected Sarpanches are being represented by their husbands and or sons and only are rubber stamps.
