*Gujarat farmers have serious water problem: Raghav Chadha*Author : Rakesh Behal
The Aam Aadmi Party, which is moving forward with its victory chariot in the Gujarat elections, has become the first choice of the people of Gujarat today. From national leaders to workers of Aam Aadmi Party, everyone is working day and night to bring change in Gujarat. Aam Aadmi Party's Rajya Sabha MP and Gujarat State Co-in-charge Shri Raghav Chadha has been holding big public meetings and rallies in different parts of Gujarat for the past several days. Today Shri Raghav Chadha took part in big public meetings in Kankrej and Patan of Banaskantha. Thousands of people participated in the public meetings organised by the Aam Aadmi Party. It is clearly visible from the unprecedented support of the people that change will be brought in Gujarat.
While addressing thousands of people present, Aam Aadmi Party's Rajya Sabha MP and Gujarat State Co-in-charge Shri Raghav Chadha said, "Today Gujarat is standing at an important juncture. Today, for the first time, the people of Gujarat have got such an opportunity when they can get rid of the BJP and Congress and form an honest, educated and hard working Aam Aadmi Party Government. The Congress party was in power in Delhi for 15 years. But the people of Delhi once made up their mind and uprooted the strong Congress party which had been ruling for 15 years from Delhi. And the people of Delhi formed the Aam Aadmi Party Government with the largest majority of independent India."
He continued, "Similarly, Punjab was ruled by only two parties for 50 years, the Congress and the Akali Dal. The people of Punjab also uprooted both these parties and formed the Aam Aadmi Party Government. Since Gujarat became a separate state, it has been ruled by the Congress party for 35 years and then by the BJP for 27 years. Under the rule of BJP and Congress, their sons, daughters and their family members became big people, they bought big cars, made big mansions and built big businesses. But these governments did not give anything to the common people, to the poor and to the farmers. The people of Gujarat have given 35 years to the Congress and 27 years to the BJP. So I have a request that the people of Gujarat should try the Aam Aadmi Party by giving us one chance only for 5 years."
He added, "Right now the farmers of Gujarat are facing a serious water problem. Today the farmers here have a lot of debt. The situation has become so bad that the farmer who feeds the entire country cannot even feed his family. The Aam Aadmi Party has promised that when the Aam Aadmi Party Government is formed on December 8, after that the farmers of Gujarat will get electricity and plenty of water for farming. Along with this, farmers will get a chance to sell their crops at the MSP price, and every family of Gujarat will be given 300 units of free electricity every month. Every child of Gujarat will be given world class education free of cost. Best treatment will be provided free of cost to all the people of Gujarat. The government will bear all the expenses of the drug-operation whether it is thousand rupees or lakhs. Every woman of Gujarat will also be given an honorarium of ₹1,000 every month. When the Aam Aadmi Party will do all this work for the people of Gujarat, then the people of Gujarat will get relief from inflation."
He further said, "BJP people say that they should bring a double engine government in Gujarat. While Gujarat has had a double engine government since 2014, petrol in Gujarat was ₹60 a liter in 2014, now it is getting ₹100 a liter. In 2014 the price of diesel was ₹50 a liter and now it is ₹90. In 2014, LPG cylinder was available for ₹500, now it is available for ₹1,060. Earlier a packet of desi ghee was available for ₹350 and now it is available for ₹650. In 2014 milk was ₹36 per liter and today milk has become ₹60 per liter. In 2014, the private doctor used to charge ₹300, today they charge ₹800. In 2014, a box of Singh oil was available for ₹1,000, now it is sold for ₹2,800. This is the condition of double engine inflation. Shri Arvind Kejriwal was born only to end inflation and corruption. Shri Arvind Kejriwal and Aam Aadmi Party will get you freedom from inflation and will give you benefits of around ₹30,000 every month."
He concluded, "The people of Gujarat have to decide whether they want a corrupt and inflationary government or want an honest Kejriwal government who gives you benefits of about ₹30,000 every month. Next month you will get a chance to make a choice. On December 8, we will not just make the fate of any party but will make the future of your children and your family brighter. I have come here spreading my arms and asking for a chance, I want you to give a chance to Shri Arvind Kejriwal. I want you to make our candidate win with a lot of votes. I am quite sure that the Aam Aadmi Party Government will be formed in Gujarat and a government with public participation will be formed."
