Panaji, Jan 26: Arvind Kejriwal-led Aam Aadmi Party on Thursday said it would put in place systems within three months 'to weed out corruption from the state departments', if voted to power in Goa.

AAP's chief ministerial candidate in Goa, Elvis Gomes, while talking to PTI said, "Systems will be put in place within 90 days to weed out corruption. It will include implementation of various measures like increasing vigilance and introduction of e-governance on a large scale."

"These are two important issues that would be put in place within 90 days. Eventually in the course of time, the entire process will be so efficient that the interface between public and government official will be reduced," he said.

When the interface is reduced, corruption will start getting eliminated, Gomes said, adding, "Goa is a small state, so it is an ideal place to do so."

"There is sufficient internet percolation, which will help the e-governance," he said.

The AAP has already announced that it would create 50,000 new jobs. Outlining his plan for job creation, Gomes said he will impose more tax on the private companies that do not provide employment to the local youths.

"The companies that do not hire Goans, will be taxed more than their counterparts. We also intend to push for creation of skill-development and training centers across the state to achieve our target of these 50,000 new jobs," said Gomes.

"Reputed global and Indian B-schools, film and media institutes will be invited to set-up campuses in Goa creating a fresh pool of highly skilled work-force, in the state," he added.

AAP is contestig 39 out of the 40 seats in Goa assembly, the election to which will be held on February 4.
