AAP 10 Promises: Mr. Kejriwal offers a wide range of public welfare programs, such as promises of free energy and better healthcare.

Arvind Kejriwal, the chief minister of Delhi, declared today the '10 assurances' offered by the AAP in the event that the party wins the 2024 Lok Sabha elections. Mr. Kejriwal's commitments cover a wide range of public welfare projects, like as promises of improved healthcare and free power.

"BJP has always failed on its promises; my guarantees have proven track record," stated Kejriwal. "People have to take a call whether to go for 'Kejriwal ki Guarantee' or 'Modi Guarantee."

The guarantee of free power for everyone is at the center of Mr. Kejriwal's election campaign pledges, with an emphasis on the underprivileged segments of society. The leader of the AAP argued for a national rollout of Delhi's continuous power supply paradigm.

"The first of the ten promises is that the nation would have power available around-the-clock. Although the nation can produce 3 lakh MW of power, only 2 lakh MW are actually used. More power can be produced in our nation than can be used. We will carry it out nationwide, like we have in Punjab and Delhi. We will provide all the impoverished people up to 200 units of free power. We can make arrangements for the ₹ 1.25 lakh crore expenditure," Mr. Kejriwal stated.

Restructuring education in public schools is second on Mr. Kejriwal's list of electoral promises. The chief minister of Delhi asserted that ₹ 5 lakh crore would be needed to fix it, and that the federal government and state governments should each contribute ₹ 2.5 lakh crore to cover the entire expense.

"The state of our government schools is not excellent right now. Our second promise is that we will set up first-rate, free education for everybody. A superior education will be given by government schools than by private ones. We've completed it in Punjab and Delhi. It will cost ₹ 5 lakh crore to do this. For this, the national government would provide ₹ 2.5 crore and state governments will contribute ₹ 2.5 lakh crore," he stated.

The AAP national convener also proposed spending ₹ 5 lakh crore to upgrade India's healthcare system and restructure government institutions.

"The state of our nation's government hospital is not excellent. Improved healthcare is our third assurance. We'll make sure everyone is treated well. There will be mohalla clinics in every community and village. A multispecialty hospital will be created out of a district hospital. Every citizen in our nation is entitled to free medical care. Insurance will not be used as the foundation for treatment because this is a major fraud. We're going to build infrastructure. Mr. Kejriwal announced that ₹ 5 lakh crore rupees will be allocated for healthcare.

Mr. Kejriwal claims that other assurances on the list include "freeing" Indian land from Chinese control, ending the Agniveer program, giving farmers MSP in accordance with the Swaminathan Commission findings, and giving Delhi complete statehood.

"'Nation first' is our fourth guarantee. While our central government denies it, China has been occupying our territory.The might of our army is immense. Every inch of the nation that China has taken over will be returned to its original owners. On one hand, diplomatic efforts will be made in this respect, while on the other, the Army will be granted total autonomy to pursue its interests in this regard. Agniveer is a bad program that troubles young people as well as the army. Mr. Kejriwal declared, "The Agniveer scheme will be withdrawn."

The Delhi excise policy scam case led to Mr. Kejriwal's detention by the Enforcement Directorate (ED). On Friday, the Supreme Court granted him temporary release.

Mr. Kejriwal announced the formation of the Opposition INDIA coalition, which includes his AAP, the day after he was released from Tihar prison. The opposition alliance was formed to oppose the BJP-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA) in the Lok Sabha elections. It is made up of organizations like as the AAP, Congress, Trinamool Congress, Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam, and others.
