After Punjab, Uttarakhand, AAP Eyes Goa Assembly Polls; Kejriwal To Visit Today

AAP has been targeting the Congress party in Goa, accusing it of selling its MLAs to the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).


With just a few months left for Assembly elections in Goa next year, political parties have started the groundwork for Mission 2022. Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) is gearing up to contest the upcoming assembly elections in Goa. Delhi Chief Minister and Aam Aadmi Party convener Arvind Kejriwal will visit Goa on Tuesday to boost the party’s campaign. Kejriwal had earlier made it clear that AAP will be contesting five states’ elections including Goa, Uttarakhand and Punjab. Ahead of his two-day visit, Kejriwal said Goa wanted a politics of change and honesty. There is no shortage of money here.

“Goa wants development”

Giving details of his visit on Monday, Kejriwal said in a tweet, “Goa wants change. There are enough parties buying and selling MLAs. Dirty politics has also happened. Goa wants development. There is no paucity of money here.”

The Delhi Chief Minister reiterated the AAP’s slogan ‘Let’s clean Goa’s politics’ in the state. AAP has been targeting the Congress party, accusing it of selling its MLAs to the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP). The party is expected to do better this time in the assembly elections to be held in Goa. However, in the 2017 election, it failed to win a single seat.

Free Electricity and Subsidy Promise In Punjab

Earlier, Kejriwal has visited Punjab and Uttarakhand. He has promised 300 units of free electricity in these states if AAP comes to power. Other promises made by the AAP chief included waiving old bills and providing free electricity to farmers. Referring to the work done by his government in Delhi, Kejriwal said that if given a chance, AAP can do the same in other election states.

“There will be no power cuts. Free electricity does not mean long cuts. When we took power in Delhi, 7-8 hours of power cuts were common. We did it right,” Kejriwal said in Dehradun on Sunday. Kejriwal had last year announced a 100 per cent subsidy for households that consume up to 200 units of electricity in Delhi. Consumers of 201-400 units got about 50 per cent subsidy.
