Delhi chief minister and Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) national convener Arvind Kejriwal will arrive in Goa on Thursday for a two-day visit.
In order to reach out to the Goan community ahead of the 2022 assembly elections, Kejriwal will be visiting various assembly constituencies in the state.
The Delhi Chief Minister is scheduled to arrive in Goa on Thursday afternoon. He will address various sabhas over the next two days. The Sabhas will be held at eight constituencies in the state, namely Shiroda, Poriem, Mayem, St. Cruz, Velim, Benaulim, Cortalim and Navelim, to explain the AAP’s vision for the state.
During the last visit Kejriwal announced his party’s eight-point agenda in the interest of Goa’s Scheduled Tribes (ST). He assured that the money allocated for the ST community under the tribal sub plan is spent for their welfare. The AAP government will ensure that the 3,000 vacant posts for ST community in government offices are filled, arrange private jobs for the remaining and give unemployment allowance of Rs 3,000 until jobs are secured.
He asserted that land ownership for tribals will be ensured by implementing the Forest Rights Act, which has not been enforced so far. The Aam Aadmi Party’s government will fulfil the 12.5% reservation in the legislature, which was overlooked by past governments. Free healthcare and education will be provided to the people of the ST community – better schools and hospitals will be built. Every woman aged 18 and above will receive Rs 1,000 on a monthly basis. All these eight points from the agenda will be implemented when the Aam Aadmi Party forms its government in Goa.
