Moga, Nov 22: Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) Chief and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Monday said that every woman of Punjab, who is above 18 years of age, will get Rs 1000 per month if his party comes to power in 2022 state Assembly elections.
“If we form govt in Punjab in 2022, then we will give every woman of the state, who is above 18 years of age, Rs 1000 per month. If a family has 3 female members then each will get Rs 1000. This will be the world’s biggest women empowerment program,” Kejriwal said addressing a gathering in Moga.
Elderly women who are getting an old-age pension will continue to get that in addition to the Rs 1,000 to be credited into their accounts, he added.
The Delhi Chief Minister started his two-day Punjab visit on Monday as part of AAP’s ‘Mission Punjab’ programme.
