Punjab Congress Legislature Party leader Charanjit Singh Channi today assured one job per family if his party forms government in the state after Assembly election in 2017.

Congress party will have a separate department to ensure that this promise is accomplished in the first year of the governance, he said.

The senior Congress leader is at present undertaking ‘Jawani Sambhal Yatra’ on the issues of drugs, unemployment and goonda raj allegedly unleashed by the Parkash Singh Badal government.

The week-long yatra would culminate at Talwandi Sabo on October 3.

Slamming the Badal government for its “dismal record” on the issue of giving unemployment allowance despite making tall promises, Channi said as per the official figures, only 1,913 unemployed were given allowance since 2012 till now.

He said his party’s RTI cell activist Jasdeepak Singh had procured the information under the RTI Act.

He called upon the people in the state to assess the promises made by Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) in Punjab in the context of the performance of the Kejriwal government in Delhi.

With regard to Delhi, he said the total number of placements made by directorate of employment from February 2015 till date was 117 through online employment portal and 1,300 through employment summits.

The total number of unemployed registered with the employment directorate till date was 13,49,794, he said.
