Jalandhar: Ahead of Punjab Assembly elections, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Wednesday promised to end "red-tapism" and "inspector raj" if voted to power.
The Delhi CM, while interacting with traders and industrialists in Jalandhar, said, "Old laws will be changed, unnecessary laws will be scrapped. A system will be built wherein existing industries need not waste time over govt, you will invest your time in your business. Red tapism and inspector raj will end." Kejriwal also said that if there is an honest CM and cabinet at the top then he can assure that the entire structure below will be alright. "We have done this in Delhi," he said. Assembly elections in Punjab are scheduled to be held next year.
