Kejriwal releases AAP's LS polls manifesto: promises jan lokpal, lower age to contest elections

AAP on Thursday promised an array of initiatives in its manifesto for the Lok Sabha polls like bringing a strong Jan Lokpal Bill, installing CCTV cameras in court rooms and bringing down the age to contest elections to 21 from 25.

Releasing the manifesto, party chief Arvind Kejriwal said decentralization of power, citizen's charter to ensure time-bound delivery of services and providing good governance will be some other priority areas for the party.

The AAP leader said his party was "industry friendly" as creation of wealth was essential for overall development of the country but noted that it was against "crony capitalism".

Emphasising on judicial accountability, he also proposed to double the number of judges in courts across the country in the next five years. "We will install CCTV in police stations. There should be cameras in interrogation rooms as well. We have proposed to make separate investigative and law and order wings in police.

The internal accountability of police must be fixed. "There must be judicial accountabilty. We must have a fast, efficient and honest justice system. In five years, we will double the number of judges to ensure speedy justice," he said.


The AAP leader also announced that the four-year undergraduate programme in Delhi University will be withdrawn as demanded by a section of students and teachers.

Stressing on police reforms, Kejriwal said his party will make "not lodging an FIR an offence". Elaborating on its economic policy, Kejriwal said that his party was pro-business and pro-industries. "We are not against industries or business, but we are against crony capitalism.

We believe that unless industries dont flourish we wont be able generate jobs. "But, we are against the system of contract labours because it violates basic human rights," he said.


On foriegn policy, the AAP leader said that his party advocated friendly relations with all the countries, but had "zero tolerance" for cross border terrorism. "We will work to reduce political hostilities in our immediate neighbourhood but we will have zero tolerance for cross border terrorism.

"Border areas should be developed as zones of high economic engagements to create a larger constituency for peace on both sides. We will work to enhance the defence capacity to deter the border incursions by China, but will also strive for a greater and more balanced trade with the country," he said.

Kejriwal added that the party will not only work to reduce the foriegn dependence in equipment, but also will also try to bring transparency in procurement of defence equipment.

With 426 candidates declared for the Lok Sabha polls, the 15-month-old AAP has shot ahead of major parties like the Congress (414), BJP (415) and SP (160).


Kejriwal will challenge Bharatiya Janata Party's prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi in Varanasi and Kumar Vishwas aims to tackle Congress' Rahul Gandhi in his constituency Amethi.

While the Kejriwal-led party released its manifesto a week after Congress launched its poll document, the BJP will share its document on April 7.

Facebook testing 'read-it-later' button for News Feed



Facebook is reportedly testing a new feature for its News Feed that would allow users to save feed articles for later readings.

The read-it-later Save button would create a section of bookmarked sites on a user's profile, which could be accessed afterwards.

According to Tech Crunch, a few weeks after Facebook acqui-hired the talent from Spool, the social media giant started testing a native Save button on mobile, which was never rolled out.

However, latest screenshots of the new feature show a Save button located below an external link's preview window near the Like button.

When clicked, it saves a link to the article to a 'Saved' section of their Timeline and a shortcut to that section appears on the homepage's left rail navigation sidebar.

The Saved section shows a site's headline, link, thumbnail image, the person who originally posted the article to a user's feed, and a share button.

The feature could encourage news publishers to focus more on pushing content to Facebook since Save could boost referral traffic.

The report said that if Facebook rolls out a version of Save, it would be in direct competition with Twitter mobile's third party read-it-later service Pocket, Instapaper or Safari Reading List.

Aadhaar implementation a threat to nation’s security: Lekhi

‘Some of its aspects may be reviewed if BJP comes to power’

Terming the manner in which the Aadhaar project is being implemented as dangerous to the country’s security, the Bharatiya Janata Party on Tuesday indicated that it may review some of its aspects if it comes to power.

Speaking to presspersons here on the sidelines of an interaction with college students on election issues, BJP national spokesperson Meenakshi Lekhi also sought a CBI probe into various aspects of the Aadhaar project, including the manner in which finances had been allocated for it.

When asked if the BJP would scrap the project if it comes to power, Ms. Lekhi said, “Aadhaar needs a re-look to see if anything has gone wrong and to know who stores and shares the biometric data of citizens.”

Attack on Nilekani

Earlier, at the interaction, she launched an attack on Unique Identification Authority of India chairman and Infosys cofounder Nandan Nilekani, who is taking on BJP’s five-time MP Ananth Kumar in Bangalore South on the Congress ticket. She said Aadhaar was a project for which one had to be condemned rather than appreciated.

“I will be ashamed to take credit for such a project,” she said.

Without taking Mr. Nilekani’s name, Ms. Lekhi alleged that the Aadhaar project was dangerous and also posed a threat to the country’s security as it regularised the stay of illegal immigrants from other countries by granting citizenship to them at the cost of the welfare of genuine residents.

‘Norms violated’
Aadhaar project had violated the Parliamentary norms and the direction issued by the Supreme Court to ensure that it was not made mandatory for offering services and foreign citizens were not enrolled under it, she said.

She also accused the UPA government of ignoring the country’s security interests by providing political positions to some of those who allegedly had links with Maoists.
