AAP promises better life to poor

Manifesto likely to highlight e-governance via mobile phone

Aam Aadmi Party, in its manifesto, will connect two extremes of Delhi society — the high-tech middle class and the poor and under privileged. It will be assuring better life to the poor, the party will also be promising complete e-governance through mobile phone.

The party is likely to release its comprehensive manifesto in next two days. Political scientist and senior AAP leader Yogendra Yadav is heading the team which is giving final touch to the manifesto.  
The manifesto will have common promises on electricity and water which the party have been expressing in detail. 

All government services and forms will be made available online and on the phone, the party said on Tuesday.

The data on the government projects, performance, accounts and personnel will be made transparent and online.

The party has declared ‘Big Change without Big Spending’ as its motto.
AAP has also declared that it will pass Swaraj Bill to devolve power directly to the people. “Decisions affecting the local community will be taken by citizens, and implemented by their Secretariat.

A Citizen Local Area Development (C-LAD) Fund will be given to every Mohalla Sabha and Resident Welfare Association, thus devolving funds, functions and functionaries to the smallest unit,” the party said.

“We are collecting the views of every section of the society. We will prioritise them and accommodate them. The irony of Delhi is that it never accommodates voice of poor people despite their big population. We will accommodate every section of the society, but our priority would be poor and deprived,” said a senior party leader.

“I have demanded that party should promise house to every slumdweller at the place where they currently live. I have also suggested that every Assembly constituency should have at least one school with the facility of education up to class 12,” said Harish Khanna, the former MLA of Timarpur and a teacher in Delhi University who decided not to contest the current assembly elections.

The AAP has also declared its resolve to pass Delhi Jan Lokpal Bill when it comes to power.
All the public officials including Chief Minister, ministers and MLAs will come in the ambit of Jan Lokpal Law. Every public official will have to declare their assets.
