AAP woos voters promising 8 lakh jobs, 20 new colleges
New Delhi, Nov 15: Kickstarting its sessions to connect with the masses and woo voters ahead of Delhi assembly polls, the AAP today launched a five-point programme for the youth, promising 8 lakh jobs, vocational training, setting up of 20 new colleges, sports facilities and having wi-fi connectivity across Delhi.

The party formally launched the Delhi Dialogue, an interactive initiative to connect with voters of different stratas of society, and spelt out its strategy for youth. The party will come up with a 50-point programme catering to different sections of the society.

Highlighting the issue of admission, faced by students especially after class XII, AAP's National Convenor Arvind Kejriwal said the main cause of the the problem was lack of infrastructure in the education sector. "No new college has been built since last 15-20 years, which is leading to this problem. Giving education to the these students will be government's responsibility. We will double the number of existing seats and construct 20 new colleges for the youth.

"Many villages have also complained about lack of educational institutions. The government will build colleges in these villages to ensure that the students there get admission," Kejriwal said at a function held at Jantar Mantar here. He said if his party voted to power the new government will also ensure that students get loan for pursuing their education.

"The government will also be a guarantor to these students so that they don't have to mortage their property and valuables to get education," he said. The AAP chief also tried to woo the youth by making Delhi a wi-fi city.

"We are working on the details to have wi-fi across Delhi," he said. The former Chief Minister said efforts would be made to fill over 50,000 vacancies of doctors, teachers, nurses and other professionals in the Delhi government.

"The colleges the government would build will be designed in a way that students won't have to look for jobs. It will have incubation centres. After passing out, the student can be given a facility to carry out his venture and we will also help to get loan through banks. "We will create the Delhi Skill Mission, which will help generate 8 lak jobs in Delh," he said.
