Arvind Kejriwal slams critics for taking dig at his Punjab poll promise of monthly 1k transfer to all women
New Delhi/IBNS: Delhi Chief Minister and Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) supremo Arvind Kejriwal on Sunday slammed his critics for questioning the party's poll promise of transferring Rs. 1,000 per month to all women in Punjab if voted to power in 2022.
"Congress, BJP, and Akali Dal are criticizing me saying that the government coffers will become empty if this is done," Kejriwal said in Punjabi in a video message.
He also took a dig at the Congress and said these dynastic parties have been ruling for years and had already emptied the state's coffers.
Last week, Kejriwal had announced that if the AAP is voted to power in the 2022 Punjab polls, a sum of Rs. 1,000 would be transferred monthly into the account of every woman in the state who is over 18 years old.
Some on social media even questioned if that was the right approach to bring about women empowerment.
