It is noteworthy that Kejriwal was on Monday in Uttarakhand to campaign for AAP in the state for the upcoming 2022 assembly polls.
During the party’s Uttarakhand Nav Nirman rally at the Parade Ground in Dehradun, Kejriwal had promised to pay Rs 1 crore to the next of kin of security personnel killed in the line of duty in Uttarakhand as “Samman Rashi” if the AAP comes to power.
The Delhi CM had also promised to give direct jobs in government to retired Army jawans aged 34-35 years and make them partners in the building of a new Uttarakhand making full use of their patriotism, military skills and discipline.
Delhi on Monday recorded 4,099 fresh COVID-19 cases with a positivity rate of 6.46 per cent. The number of new coronavirus infections and positivity rate in the city is the highest since May 18. A positivity rate of more than 5 per cent for two consecutive days will trigger a ‘red alert’ under the DDMA-approved Graded Response Action Plan (GRAP) leading to a ‘total curfew’ and halting of most economic activities.
