At the event Kejriwal launched a scathing attack on previous governments in Punjab, claiming that various kinds of mafia, including ‘transport mafia’, flourished under them but the Bhagwant Mann-led AAP government was a ‘fiercely honest government’ that does not hesitate in taking hard decisions. While, Punjab CM Mann reiterated that for decades only private transporters had run their buses on this route and looted people.

Punjab CM Bhagwant Mann further said, “This is a historic occasion when the Punjab government has fulfilled its promise to the people by ending monopoly of the private transporters and introducing cheap and luxury travel to IGI airport in approximately ₹1,100 for one way fare barring Amritsar, from where the fare would be ₹1390 because of the longer distance covered.”

On Friday, Bhagwant Mann had announced that luxurious Volvo buses service will start from Punjab to the Delhi airport. He had also said for decades only private transporters had run their buses on this route and “looted people by charging according to their own whims and fancies” but now the money earned will go to the state exchequer. CM Mann assured that the fare of the Volvo buses will be half of that of private buses without compromising on the services.
