New Delhi: As the Aam Aadmi Party government completes three years in power in Delhi on February 14, the party will organise ‘Vikas Yatras’ in every Assembly constituency to make public aware of the pro-people activities done by the government so far.

All party MLAs, ministers and functionaries will meet Delhiites and share details of all the good work done in the past three years.

Claiming that the AAP was the only party in India to have delivered 90 per cent of its promises made in the election manifesto, its Delhi convenor Gopal Rai said it was launching a drive to share the government’s accomplishments on February 11.

“In each of the 70 Assembly seats, the party will conduct a ‘Vikas Yatra’, which will be led by the party MLAs, ministers and senior leaders. The aim was to establish a dialogue with the citizens,” he added.

He said that in the second phase, the party functionaries, especially ‘booth in-charges’ will meet the citizens and will share all the work done by the Delhi government.

“They will also take the feedback of the citizens and convey the same to the government,” Mr Rai said.

“You maybe aware that there are many state governments run by both the BJP and the Congress, but there is not a single state that can show even a fraction of the work done by the AAP government in Delhi.

Despite facing many hindrances and ‘deliberate’ hurdles, the government has kept its focus on delivering the manifesto promises. We have delivered almost on all the commitments made in our manifesto,” Mr Rai said.

Elucidating the hallmark achievements of the AAP-led Delhi Government in the city, Mr Rai said that it has not only provided round-the-clock electricity but has also substantially reduced electricity charges, wherein rate for low consumption of below 400 units were slashed by half. "By providing free water for those whose consumption is less than 20000 litres the government has not only made water free for the poor, but also saved water consumption," he said.

"The work done on education is being lauded universally. There is no other government in India that spends 25 per cent of its budget on education. We have proved to the country that it is possible to have world-class standards in government provided education. The work in health sector has also been revolutionary. Today if a citizen walks into a government hospital but cannot get an expedient date for his or her surgery, than the government pays for the surgery in private hospital. We believe that free and timely healthcare is the right of every citizen of India," he said.

"We raised pensions, minimum wages, salaries of anganwaadi workers. We ensure that roads, water pipes and sewer lines reach even the most remote and even the poorest areas like un-authorised colonies.  The AAP government is only government in the country that gives Rs.50000 per hectare as compensation for crop damage to farmers.  The work on the CCTV and WiFi installations has also begun," he added.
