In an effort to bolster support for the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal unveiled his ’10 assurances’ as part of the Opposition INDIA bloc’s electoral promises for the upcoming Lok Sabha elections.

During a press conference in Delhi on Sunday, the AAP national convenor stated that they would unveil ’10 guarantees of Kejriwal’ for the  Lok Sabha Elections 2024. This announcement was postponed due to my arrest, but there are still many phases of elections remaining.

He mentioned that he hadn’t yet discussed these guarantees with other INDIA bloc partners but expressed hope that no one would have any objections to them. “I assure you that once the INDIA alliance assumes power, I will ensure the implementation of these guarantees.”
