Lauding the “strenuous efforts for promotion of industry in the state”, Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) national convenor and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Thursday said in the form of Bhagwant Singh Mann, Punjab has got the best Chief Minister for the state.

He said the Punjab government will take this number to 2000 industries with its industry-friendly policies.
Kejriwal said he still remembers AAP had promised many guarantees to industrialists before the elections at this same place and assured that the government will fulfill each and every promise made to them. He said the Punjab government had issued a phone number to seek feedback about the problems and issues being faced by industries.
“After scrutiny of the records, we have found that industrialists had only three main issues including electricity, road infrastructure and systematic problems,” the AAP leader said . He said the AAP government was committed to redress all concerns raised by industrialists promptly.
The Delhi CM said the Punjab CM Bhagwant Mann personally went to each and every renowned industrialist and due to his persistent efforts, the state has received investments more than Rs 50000 Crore within one and half years after AAP came to power. He said this investment would create 2.86 lakh jobs in the state.
