Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Monday said that Punjab is in very bad shape and the Aam Aadmi Party was their only hope. Kejriwal who visited Malerkotla and various other towns of Punjab said: “I am overwhelmed by the response from the people.”
Kejriwal claimed that with elections in Punjab round the corner, the Malerkotla sacrilege incident which was “politically motivated” is being “blown out of proportion” by the SAD-BJP government.
Declaring that AAP will work to uplift the Dalits when it comes to power in Punjab, the Delhi Chief Minister claimed that over 90 per cent Dalits had voted for his party in the national capital and they still stand with the party as it had done what it had promised.
Kejriwal said he would implement the “Delhi model of education”. He alleged that the rulers of Punjab had “kept the condition of government schools dismal” so that children of the poor and Dalits could not progress.
In Jalandhar, Kejriwal said if elected to power, AAP will form a special investigation team (SIT) to review cases against Dalits in the state.
