Won’t take shares from businessmen, will make them partners in government instead: Bhagwant Mann
If any of our MLA-Minister asks for share in business, will take immediate action: Arvind Kejriwal
Chandigarh/Mohali, January 16, 2022: Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) national convener and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal made many big announcements related to the security of the businessmen, traders, and common people of Punjab.
In a press conference with AAP's Punjab chief ministerial candidate Bhagwant Mann in Mohali on Wednesday, Kejriwal announced that for the safety of the business class, after March 10 no leader or officer would intimidate any businessman of Punjab or get him raided.
After the formation of the AAP government, if any of our MLAs or ministers ask for a share from a businessman, then we will take immediate action against the leader.
"The leaders of Akali-Congress parties, sitting in power, ask the traders for share and weekly cuts. If people refuse to pay they are intimidated by the threats of raids. The businessmen of Punjab are most troubled by corrupt politicians and officers. To eliminate the fear of traders, we will completely eliminate Inspector Raj, Raid Raj, and illegitimate tax to create a safe environment for business. Kejriwal appealed to all the traders and arhtiyas of Punjab for support and said that this time give a chance to the Aam Aadmi Party. Just as we have won the hearts of the traders of Delhi, we will win yours too," said Kejriwal.
On the issue of security of the people of Punjab, Arvind Kejriwal accused the previous Akali-Congress government of registering false cases to intimidate people and said that the governments of both the parties misused the police to register false cases against thousands of people who raised their voices against crime, corruption, and mafia and created an atmosphere of fear among the people.
"Today all the people of Punjab are scared because of Akali-Congress’s ‘goondaraj’. Aam Aadmi Party's government will end the ‘parcha raj’. AAP promised to dismiss all false cases and make people feel safe and create fear free environment," he added.
AAP Punjab Chief Minister candidate Bhagwant Mann assured the businessmen and traders of Punjab that we will not ask for any share from any trader, but will make them (business class) a partner in the government.
"The AAP government will work closely with the traders and make new schemes to promote business. We will completely delink business from police and politics. Will create a safe environment for industry and business and will stop the exodus of traders from Punjab," he assured.
Mann said that with the increase in business, the revenue of the government would also increase and employment opportunities would also increase for the youth
