Mumbai: On Thursday, Aam Aadmi Party spokesperson Atishi said that AAP is the only political party to fulfil all promises made by them in its 2015 election manifesto. She further added that the proposal to set up free WiFi hotspots across the national capital was “historic”.
Hours after Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal announced his Cabinet’s decision to set up 11,000 free WiFi hotspots across the city in the next 3 to 4 months, the Aam Aadmi Party spokesperson Atishi gave her statement.
The party had released a 70-point action plan before the election. She said that free WiFi is a “right” as it is a basic infrastructure any modern city should have.
“From the 70-point action plan, Arvind Kejriwal has delivered electricity at half prices, free water, augmenting water resources through rainwater harvesting, provision of high-quality education, expansion of the healthcare infrastructure and installation of CCTVs in public spaces among others,” she said.
Atishi said, “Why do people not trust politicians? Because parties come and go, manifestos come and go, governments come and go, but the promises made by politicians always remain unfulfilled.”
“When Arvind Kejriwal had made promises on electricity, water, schools, hospitals in 2015, he was mocked by some. Today, before the five-year term has even ended, all our promises are being fulfilled,” she added.
Atishi mentioned the key campaign promises already fulfilled by the party.
