Punjab Congress chief Amarinder Singh on Sunday, described the Aam Aadmi Party’s 51-point youth
manifesto as a “bunch of stolen ideas from the Congress” including those related to a drug and corruption-free Punjab.

“This is not even the old wine in new bottles, but stolen wine in stolen bottles,” he said while challenging the AAP to prove that its manifesto is not a carbon copy of the Congress announcements made in the recent past.

“Sounds strange that they did not even make an attempt to hide their theft,” Amarinder remarked, adding “the AAP has simply copy-pasted our ideas of drug free and corruption-free Punjab, besides generating employment and cancelling all the false cases, which we promised under oath at the Badlaav Rally in Bathinda on December 15.”

“Not that we had expected something miraculously novel or new from the AAP particularly with someone like Kanwar Sandhu, with a worn out mind, heading the committee, but we certainly did not expect it to be an act of shameless and senseless plagiarism,” he said.

He said while AAP has announced it will provide 25 lakh jobs, he had promised at least “one job per family” so that each family has a “reasonable and respectable monthly income”
to sustain itself.

Referring to the AAP’s announcement of “drug free Punjab”, Amarinder said, “While they say they will finish it within six months, I have promised to do it within four weeks
and I will do it even before that.”

On corruption-free administration, the former CM said, “I have already announced that there will be “zero tolerance” to corruption. He said he had already announced that all the false FIRs will be cancelled on day one and that will be the first decision of his government.

About the AAP announcement that it will scrap the application fee for recruitment in the government jobs, he said he has been repeatedly saying it in all his meetings and interactions with the youth.

About providing free Wi-Fi hotspots in colleges, the PCC president taunted the AAP, “I am sure it will meet the same fate like that in Delhi where AAP promised free Wi-Fi before elections”. However, he added, “we have announced provision of such facilities in colleges and universities and we will do
it.”

About setting up a Foreign Employment Youth Board and Punjab Overseas Employment Corporation, Amarinder said, “It is a poor copy of our Immigration Promotion Board that we have
already announced.”

Similarly, he said, the AAP has announced it will end the “monopoly” of the “rulers” over business and will offer government contracts to the youth.

“Let me ask them, how is it different from our announcement of finishing the monopoly of the Badals,” he asked.
