 Jalandhar, May 4, Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann, along with Sushil Kumar Rinku, Aam Aadmi Party’s (AAP) candidate in the Jalandhar Lok Sabha by-election, held a roadshow in various areas of Halka Jalandhar West, North and Central on Thursday and appealed to the people to make AAP’s candidate win.

 The Chief Minister started the road show from Bhargav Nagar in Jalandhar West assembly constituency. From here the roadshow went to Nari Niketan Chowk. In Jalandhar Central Assembly constituency, the Chief Minister did a road show from Milap Chowk to Bhagat Singh Chowk. In Jalandhar North assembly constituency, he did road show from Domoria bridge to Kishapura Chowk. CM Mann also interacted with the people during this roadshow.

 Addressing the people of Jalandhar, the Chief Minister launched a scathing attack on the Akali Dal and the Congress Party and said that the Congress-Akali leaders have sold the education of your children. Sold the medicines of the elderly and built big palaces for themselves with this money and amassed property worth billions of rupees.

 The Chief Minister also slammed Akali Dal chief Sukhbir Badal’s wife and MP Harsimrat Kaur Badal and said that in her affidavit given to the Election Commission in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections, Harsimrat Kaur Badal told that she had three and a half kilos of gold, crores of rupees in cash and assets worth crores of rupees. He asked her where she got so much money from, adding that it is actually public money that they looted.

The Chief Minister also attacked Congress leader and former Industries Minister Shyamsundar Arora and said that in a raid at his house, apart from papers of property worth crores, a note counting machine was also found. The meaning is clear that while being the Industries Minister, he used to collect large amounts of money from the industrialists of Punjab.

 He said that in the previous governments the ruling leaders used to take share in businesses. If you did not give them share, they used to threaten and get it raided. We do not take share in any business but we share the sorrow and pain of the common people of Punjab. He said that after the formation of our government, none of our leaders demanded commission or share from the businessmen of Punjab. The industrialists of Punjab now do their business fearlessly and also pay tax of crores of rupees to the government.

 The Chief Minister said that the AAP government is the government of the common people. In the interest of state and common people, we have changed the timings of government offices and schools to 7:30 am to 2:00 pm. With this decision, 350 MW of electricity will be saved daily and government offices in Punjab will save electricity bills of more than Rs.16 crore every month. Apart from this, government employees will now also get a chance to spend more time with their families and children.
