Ex-external affairs minister and MP Patiala Preneet Kaur today held a massive protest along with ladies from various constituencies of Punjab before heading to the DC office to hand over a memorandum to DC Patiala.
Addressing the huge gathering the Patiala MP said, "The Aam Aadmi Party led by Arvind Kejriwal and Bhagwant Mann gave a guarantee to the People of Punjab before the Vidhan Sabha elections that once elected they will give Rs 1000 per month to every women above 18 in the state.
But now it's been 6 months and there is no sign of the government fulfilling one of its major poll promises."She further said, "There is a growing resentment among the women as they feel completely cheated by the government against their non implementation of the commitment by the AAP government.
It is our due right which was promised to us by the government and if the Punjab government fails to fulfill this guarantee by October then we will hold massive protests against them all over the Punjab."
Talking about the Captain Amarinder Singh regime, the Patiala MP said, "During his tenure Captain Amarinder Singh Ji implemented many pro-women policies like giving them free bus travel, 50% reservation in Local bodies and Panchayati Raj elections, increase the amount of Shagun schemes and many more."
Replying to a media query on Sidhu Moosewala's justice march she said, "Loss of such young life is completely tragic and saddening, Sidhu Moosewala was murdered in broad daylight and it is understandable that his parents are demanding justice and I completely support them in their quest."
While handing over the memorandum to the Patiala DC Sakshi Sawhney Preneet Kaur said, "I stand before you representing the ladies of Punjab as we demand the state government to immediately fulfill its commitment to the common folk.
I also want to point out to the government through you that the vendetta politics that they are playing against us, will not be tolerated at all. Picking and targeting our MCs just because we are in opposition is completely unfair and unjust and it should be stopped immediately."Preneet Kaur was joined by thousands of ladies from across Punjab.
