"Every family in Goa will get a benefit of Rs 10 lakh at the end 5 years if AAP comes to power," he added.
"We will give free electricity that would be saving Rs 6,000 per year. Women will get a Rs 1000 allowance. If there are two women in a family then they would get an allowance of Rs 24,000 per year. We will give livelihood to people and the people who will not have livelihood then we will give Rs 3000 per month allowance to them," he said.
