Hyderabad: Arvind Kejriwal lead Aam Aadmi Party is planning to contest the Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation elections scheduled this year with the promise of implementing in Hyderabad the benefits it is already offering to the people of Delhi.
Ms Priyanka Kakkar, the AAP in-charge for Telangana state and Supreme Court Advocate in conversation with Deccan Chronicle said that if the AAP comes to power in the GHMC, it will supply free 200 units of power 24/7, apart from 20,000 litres of drinking water to every household of Greater Hyderabad. The party will also provide quality education and medical health to people of the twin cities, just as it is doing in Delhi.
Kakkar is working in the city for the launch of AAP’s membership drive in all the 150 wards of the GHMC.
She also said that AAP is a concept. Our politics is for the welfare of the people. We focus on the progress of our people. That is why, while the GDP of the whole country is going down, the GDP of Delhi, where our party is ruling, is nearly 8 per cent.
Kakkar also raised her concern towards the budget on education and further questioned the state government that why are they spending only 6.9 per cent of its Budget on education when Delhi’s Budget for the same is 26 per cent. Likewise, while AAP’s expenditure on medical and health is 12 per cent of the budget, it is only 3.6 per cent for Telangana state.
