Until we provide jobs, every youth will get Rs. 3,000 per month: Arvind Kejriwal's new promise for Gujarat ahead of polls

Ahmedabad/IBNS: Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) chief Arvind Kejriwal promised to create 10 lakh government jobs in Gujarat and provide an allowance of Rs. 3,000 monthly to unemployed youth if his government gets voted to power in the state.

If AAP forms a government in Gujarat, his party will ensure that each and every unemployed youth gets a job in the next five years, he promised.

Assembly elections are due by the end of this year in Gujarat, where Kejriwal's party is eyeing to gain a foothold after its huge victory in Punjab.

"Until we provide them jobs, every jobless youth will get ₹ 3,000 per month unemployment allowance," Kejriwal announced, addressing a public rally at Veraval town of Gir Somnath district in the Saurashtra region.

Besides his job promise, he has already offered free water and electricity and the Delhi mode of education and health that got huge support in Punjab. 

Responding to the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party's "rewari" coinage for the free electricity and water provided in AAP-ruled states, Kejriwal said the BJP's rewari is "offered only to their friends and ends up in Swiss banks". 

Kejriwal said it is only the people who deserve "free rewari". "It is public money, whatever you get free should be for citizens and not for contractors or ministers," he added.

"Today, Gujarat has a debt of ₹ 3.5 lakh crore. Was I behind this? Has Kejriwal done this? Have they given you any free rewari? Do you get anything for free in Gujarat? They do not, then why this debt? This is because of corruption," he said.

"Those who speak against free rewari have bad intentions. I am saying, discuss in the country, conduct a referendum whether people should get electricity, water, education -- free or not," added the Delhi Chief Minister.
