Celebrating one year of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) government in Punjab, Chief minister Bhagwant Mann said that the state government is working to bring prosperity to the next generation and not focusing on winning elections.

“The people of the state had given a thumping verdict in favour of the Aam Aadmi Party during the assembly elections held last year. During the last year, revolutionary changes have been witnessed in the state, with the government making concerted efforts for ensuring the holistic development of Punjab and the prosperity of its people,” CM Mann said in his video message on the occasion.

“Unlike the previous governments, which did everything to form the next government, the AAP government is focusing largely on the holistic growth of the next generation,” he added.

A celebrated comedian, Mann had taken oath as the Chief minister of the state last year following AAP’s historic victory. AAP won an impressive 92 seats in the 117-seat Punjab assembly.

Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal, who is also the AAP national convenor, also celebrated the party’s historic win in the state. “One year ago, on this day, the new hopes of the people of Punjab took oath,” Kejriwal tweeted.

“Punjab’s hope in AAP has now become trust. Many promises made to the public were fulfilled in this one year and some will be done in the coming years. In these 5 years, we will fulfil every promise made to the people of Punjab. We will make Rangla Punjab,” the Delhi CM added.

CM Mann also thanked the people of Punjab for bestowing him the responsibility with a huge verdict. “This faith and love shown by people have filled me with humility to discharge this duty effectively,” he said.

CM Mann also said that for the first time, a government has been formed in Punjab that belongs exclusively to the people of the state. Mann also assured that no stone would be left unturned for the well-being of the state. “A new, progressive and vibrant Punjab will be carved out soon,” he added.
