The Rozgar Guarantee Yatra of Aam Adami Party (AAP) started from Nainital on Saturday. The Yatra was flagged off by the unemployed youths. Before embarking on the Yatra, the chief ministerial candidate of AAP, Colonel (Retd) Ajay Kothiyal paid obeisance at the Naina Devi temple. Speaking on the occasion Kothiyal said that the AAP has a history of fulfilling promises and claimed that whatever promises the party is making in Uttarakhand would be fulfilled when it comes to power.
He said when the free electricity guarantee scheme was launched by the party; thousands of the party workers visited villages and explained to people how 300 units of electricity per month would be given free. He said that during the Rozgar Guarantee Yatra, the six promises made by national convener of AAP Arvind Kejriwal would be explained to the people in all 70 assembly constituencies.
The Yatra meandering through the Mall road reached Gandhi Maidan. Addressing people here, Kothiyal said that instead of developing the state the political parties have dragged down the state in the last 20 years. Taking a dig at the political defections in the state, he said that both BJP and Congress have lost faith in their leaders. Kothiyal said that AAP is the party which has its genesis in a public movement and assured people that like Delhi all the promises being made by the party would be fulfilled in Uttarakhand when the AAP’s government is fulfilled.
The AAP leader said that the party’s vision for Rozgar Guarantee Scheme is clear and one lakh government jobs would be given within six months of coming to the power and an unemployment allowance of Rs 5000 per month would be given to the unemployed.
He added that 80 per cent jobs in Uttarakhand would be reserved for the youth of the state. The AAP leader said that since both BJP and Congress are targeting AAP, it is clear that the party is moving ahead on its mission. At Bahawali Col Kothiyal visited Kainchi Dham.
The AAP in charge Dinesh Mohania, deputy in charge Rajiv Chaudhary, officiating Bhupesh Upadhyaya and others were present on the occasion.
