The government has started working with speed. The government has asked the officials to prepare a framework for working on the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) election manifesto and the Chief Minister’s Guarantee Card because in the next five years, working on the election manifesto and the chief minister’s guarantee card is the top priority of the party. With this, the government’s emphasis will be on how fast the needs of the common man can be met.
After taking over, Cabinet Minister Kailash Gehlot said that the Chief Minister’s Guarantee Card will remain his priority.
