Ahead of the Uttar Pradesh Assembly elections, Aam Aadmi Party’s National Convenor and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal will address a rally at Lucknow’s Smriti Upvan Maidan on Sunday afternoon, informed AAP. For this rally of Kejriwal, AAP leaders have travelled all over Uttar Pradesh and taken a letter of support from the people on promises like 300 units of free electricity, 10 lakh jobs and unemployment allowance, said the party. Earlier this rally was to be held on November 28, which was cancelled due to the TET exam, as per the party.
Earlier in September last year, Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia on Thursday announced that Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) will provide 300 units of free electricity to all if voted to power in Uttar Pradesh. While, earlier in December last year, AAP announced creating 10 lakh jobs every year and providing an allowance of Rs 5,000 per month to the unemployed in Uttar Pradesh.
