[ChandigarhTarn Tarn,Majitha] Kejriwal&Majithia Attacks Each other On Punjab
AAP Ensures Punjab drug and corruption free whereas Bikram Singh Majithia Dares Kejriwal To Contest From Punjab
Delhi Chief Minister and Aam Aadmi Party convenor Arvind Kejriwal today promised to make Punjab free of drug and corruption if his party is elected to power in the state Assembly election early next year.
Kejriwal said that they will implement strategies to bring the state back on track and AAP will stop illegal mining, cable and transport mafia “thriving” under the “political patronage”.
He also said that if elected AAP government will also ensure severe punishment for the perpetrators involved in the sacrilege of Guru Granth Sahib so that nobody can even think of repeating it in the future.
Kejriwal said that this border district has been ignored by the Akalis and the Congress since its formation but AAP will revive the industrial hub at Goindwal Sahib and Sheron sugarmill which will provide employment opportunities to the youth of this area.
Parkash Singh Badal government has failed to identify and punish the accused involved in the sacrilege of Guru Granth Sahib,
Lashing out at Revenue Minister Bikram Singh Majithia, Badals and Punjab Congress chief Capt Amarinder Singh, Kejriwal said that all of them have a secret agreement on saving each other’s misdeeds.
He claimed that Badals have closed the corruption cases against Amarinder while the latter had approached Congress chairperson Sonia Gandhi to bail out Majithia from a CBI enquiry during the Congress regime at the Centre.
Had Amarinder not interfered, Majithia would have been behind the bars in multi-crore drug case, he said.
“But Aam Aadmi Party will put Bikram to jail and punish him for ruining the youth of Punjab by spreading drug trade,” he said.
Kejriwal said that God gave them a chance to serve the people of Delhi and within a short period of over one year, the health and education sectors have seen development at par with the private institutions.
Majithia dares Kejriwal to contest from his constituency
Punjab Minister Bikram Singh Majithia today challenged Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal to fight the upcoming Assembly elections from his home turf of Majitha constituency.
“Instead of making someone a scapegoat, let Kejriwal fight from the constituency (Majitha),” the Minister told mediapersons after inaugurating a rural skill centre at Athwal village
Majithia said that that the AAP chief “day dreaming of gaining power in Punjab with fake promises as he made in Delhi”.
“Kejriwal is now exposed on various fronts for his lies and promising moon to the people. Kejriwal has made life of Delhi people miserable as his performance as Delhi chief minister is a big disaster,” he claimed.
“Kejriwal’s anti-Punjab stance has been exposed on the SYL and other significant interstate issues where he took stand against Punjab and back stabbed the people of Punjab,” he added.
The Punjab minister alleged that AAP was formed on the basis of ethics and principles but the party “has adopted all unethical means in ticket allotment (for Punjab polls) even ignoring their own volunteers”.
Minister Majithia has also tweeted attack On Arvind Kejriwal
Punjab Minister said
Arvind Kejriwal will now go to jail for sure. After this defeat in the court of law, I want to defeat him in the court of the people too
I can assert with humility that I have got charges framed against Crooked Kejriwal in the court of law despite his attempts to run away./6

PWD Sprinkles Water on Delhi Roads to Reduce Dust Pollution

[New Delhi]PWD Sprinkles Water on Roads to Reduce Dust Pollution
Public Works Department (PWD) of the Delhi government today started the work of sprinkling water on roads.
“Dust clearing and water sprinkling on PWD roads started (sic),” PWD Minister Satyendar Jain tweeted.
Earlier in the day, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal announced that schools in Delhi will remain closed till Wednesday besides temporary closure of the Badarpur Power Plant and prohibition on construction and demolition activities.
Kejriwal government also mulling over the possibility of bringing back the odd-even scheme. It was also going to discuss with the Centre the possibility of engineering artificial rain in the city which has turned into a “gas chamber” due to air pollution.

Kejriwal Seeks Centre’s Help Against Pollution Menace

[New Delhi] Kejriwal Seeks Centre’s Help To Tackle Pollution Menace
Pollution level breached the safe limit by over 17 times at places, prompting Chief Minister Arvind Kerjriwal to describe Delhi as a “gas chamber” and seek the Centre’s intervention.
Kejriwal appealed to people to minimise the use of private vehicles in view of the situation and switch to public transportation facilities.
The extent of pollution surpassed even the post-Diwali levels, while smog brought down visibility to around 200 metres across the city. Monitoring agencies recorded ‘severe’ quality air and advised people to avoid going outdoors.
Kejriwal told a press conference that the smog was mainly a product of raging farm fires in neighbouring Punjab and Haryana. Later, he raised the issue with Union Environment Minister Anil Dave in a meeting at the latter’s residence.
While the 24-hour average of respirable pollutants PM 2.5 and PM 10 was 355 and 482 micrograms per cubic metre respectively, real-time figures were alarmingly high.
Anand Vihar, for instance, recorded PM 10 level at 1,711 micrograms per cubic metre at 2 PM — around 17 times above the safe limit.
The safe limits of these ultrafine particles are 60 and 100 respectively.
Even the level of gaseous pollutants like NO2 violated the prescribed standards for human inhalation as per real-time readings.
Lt Governor Najeeb Jung has also called for a high-level meeting on Monday to take stock of the immediate, short-term and long term measures, in which he invited Kejriwal, health minister Satyendar Jain, environment minister Imran Hussain, the Delhi Chief Secretary, and representatives of Police and the civic bodies.
Kejriwal said vehicle restriction measures like ‘odd-even’ scheme will not be able to bring down the smog as initial studies suggest that the “large-scale” influx of pollutant-laden smoke from Punjab and Haryana has aggravated the situation.
He said the Delhi government has very few methods at its disposal and the Centre needs to intervene.

“Since the inception of elections in Punjab, a state which has largest population of Scheduled Castes in India, the community has been treated as a vote bank
Earlier, the much publicised ‘Youth manifesto’, released by AAP supremo and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal in Amritsar, had courted controversy over the issue of superimposing the party symbol “broom” on the front page of the manifesto alongside the picture of Sri Harmandar Sahib.
Also, AAP leader Ashish Khetan equating the manifesto to the Guru Granth Sahib created a furore that refuses to die down, causing immense discomfort and damage to the party.
AAP now finds itself embroiled in religious and political controversies.
The party is also facing trouble following the arrest of its Delhi MLA Naresh Yadav in connection with a scarilage incident in Malerkolta town.
