- Every minister will be given target by Mann sahab regarding works they have to do, Kejriwal said
- Ministers will have to work or must remain ready to be replaced, says Kejriwal
- If your (ministers) targets are not met, then the public will say change this minister, he said
AAP national convenor Arvind Kejriwal on Sunday told the newly-appointed ministers in Punjab in no uncertain terms to perform or be ready to be replaced and said those unhappy with missing out on ministerial berth need to leave behind personal ambitions for the state’s progress.
While he will be there “like an elder brother to guide” them, Kejriwal said the 92 MLAs have to work with honesty as a strong team under the leadership of Punjab Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann, whom he lauded for the decisions taken after assuming office.
“Every minister will be given a target by Mann sahab regarding works they have to do. They will have to work round-the-clock,” Kejriwal said.
”If your (ministers) targets are not met, then the public will say change this minister, bring another minister… work has to be done and whatever target given by Mann Sahab has to be met,” the Aam Aadmi Party chief said in his first address to party legislators through videoconferencing after the formation of the new government in Punjab.
Kejriwal also advised the MLAs to be polite and not to be rude or use objectionable language against anyone, including officials.
