  • Will make strict laws against the drug business in the state.
  • Will make the Punjab a drug free state in a month.
  • Will arrest and the drug and illegal alcohol vendors of the state.
  • Will waive off the tax on property.
  • Women will have 33 per cent reservation and an NRI commission will be introduced in the state.
  • The party has also promised to open 'Mohalla clinic', just as the Delhi government opened in the national capital.
  • The party has promised to pass the Lokpal bill to make the Punjab a corruption free state.
  • If AAP comes to power, it would provide financial aid upto Rs 5 lakh for operations and medical treatment of chronic diseases in private hospitals under its insurance policy.
