Ahead of assembly elections in Goa, Arvind Kejriwal announces unmeployment allowance, job quota for locals

Kejriwal also said unemployed people in search of work would get an allowance of ₹ 3,000.

Ahead of the assembly polls in Goa, Aam Aadmi Party chief Arvind Kejriwal on Tuesday made seven big announcements about jobs and unemployment in the state. During a press conference in Panaji, Kejriwal said if his party comes to power in Goa, it would fight against corruption and ensure the state’s youth have access to government jobs and at least one unemployed person from each household found a job.

He also said unemployed people in search of work would get an allowance of ₹ 3,000.

The Delhi Chief Minister, who had recently visited Haldwani in Uttarakhand and made similar promises in the hill-state – also declared that 80 per cent of jobs in the state would be reserved for Goan natives.

Kejriwal also highlighted the impact of Covid-19 on the state’s finances and said unemployment allowances for those who lost their jobs to Covid-induced restrictions and bans on the mining and tourism industry– would be ₹ 5,000 per month.

Kejriwal’s seven guarantees for Goa’s youth:

  1. Jobs for Goans, not just for MLA’s relatives
  2. 1 Job/family for unemployed
  3. 3000/month until then
  4. 80% pvt jobs reserved for Goans
  5. 5000/month for unemployed in tourism due to COVID
  6. 5000/month for mining ban affected
  7. Skill University

Kejriwal had earlier promised to give 300 units of electricity free to the people of Goa on coming to power.

Pointing out their new schemes of the Goa government, Kejriwal also took a swipe at Chief Minister Pramod Sawant and the ruling BJP– free water (for 60 per cent of residents) and doorstep delivery. He said these services have been running in Delhi for several years.

Sawant is copying the Delhi model in Goa… When the original (referring to the Aam Aadmi Party) is available… what is the need for a duplicate? he asked.

Sawant had also offered free electricity in August – at an estimated ₹ 120 crore cost to the state.
