 CHANDIGARH: “After the formation of Aam Aadmi Party government in Punjab, the government treasury will be filled and along with fulfilling the guarantees given by party supremo Arvind Kejriwal , Punjab will get rid of debt of over Rs. 3 Lakh Crore.” said Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) Punjab President and Member Parliament Bhagwant Mann while addressing a press conference at the party headquarters.

He said that while the Punjab continues to reel under ever increasing debt, the fortunes and assets of the leaders of ruling party in Punjab were increasing manifold.

Bhagwant Mann said, “Today Punjab has a debt of over three lakh crore and Punjab has a population of three crore. Thus every Punjabi has a debt of one lakh on his head, meaning every child born in Punjab is being born under debt. How did this happen? While the people of Punjab are paying taxes honestly, ”he said, adding that the wealth of the ruling families of Punjab and the leaders of Congress, BJP and SAD was steadily increasing.

The leaders of the ruling party have built huge five-star and seven-star hotels, palaces and shopping malls which are visible to us. Apart from this, they have purchased land and building abroad as also progressed their accounts in foreign banks, which we do not see at all. The number of leaders' buses has increased by hundreds, while the number of government buses and routes has decreased drastically. Not a single leader of these ruling parties of Punjab has become poor, because these corrupt leaders have plundered the government treasury of Punjab one by one through the mafia rule.

Mann said that Aam Aadmi Party has a comprehensive plan for the overall development of Punjab under which pro-people policies such as providing good quality education and treatment in government institutions, development of agriculture, development of industries apart from providing debt relief of over Rs. 3 lakh crore have been formulated. AAP will endeavour to bring Punjab back on track with noble intentions and policies just as the Arvind Kejriwal government stopped the looting of Delhi's exchequer and as on date Delhi's exchequer has increased from Rs 26,000 crore to Rs 69,000 crore, due to which the Kejriwal government is generously providing facilities to the people of Delhi.

Presenting a blueprint to save Punjab's exchequer, Bhagwant Mann said, "Out of Punjab's treasury of Rs 1.68 lakh crore, Rs 30,000-35,000 crore is being looted every year through corruption and mafia which will be put to an end on priorit after formation of AAP government in Punjab . The sand mafia robbing the revenue of Punjab worth Rs 20,000 crore every year, which comes out to Rs 1 lakh crore in five years. Similarly, transport, excise and land grabbing will be stopped and pro-people policies on financial resources will be implemented.

Mann said that the Aam Aadmi Party government would work in coordination with Union government and other Indian organizations for the progress and prosperity of Punjab. Cooperation will be sought from the Central Government for any policy required for the welfare  Punjab.

Bhagwant Mann said that AAP government would not tolerate corruption, hooliganism and dictatorship in Punjab. Revenge and deliberate harassment of opponents is not part of the party's ideology and AAP is committed to make Punjab a prosperous, developed and peaceful state.
