Aam Aadmi Party focuses on SME sector in its poll manifesto
While declaring the Lok Sabha poll manifesto of Aam Aadmi Party, the party chief Arvind Kejriwal said that job creation would be the primary objective of the economic policies of the AAP. Former Delhi chief minister, Kejriwal said that his party would support SMEs and honest businesses to fit the target.
The new born AAP presenting a business friendly image said the party would foster healthy competition in the market economy and curb monopolistic and anti-competition practices. Kejriwal said that India faced three major threats in the form of corruption, communalism and crony capital.

When we spoke to Atishi Marlena, spokesperson AAP, about AAP's SME policy she said, “We are aimed to facilitate all micro and small industries basically those are struggle to survive in small towns and villages offering them a platform to grow their business.”

There are many small scale industries based on hand-craft products. A large number of youths could be employed if prompted well and APP will do this, she added.

On foreign direct investment (FDI), Kejriwal cleared that the AAP was not against FDI in principle but has been opposing it sector wise. But he insisted that his party was against FDI in retail trade.

It is the first time the AAP has come out with its comprehensive thinking on a host of issues after being dubbed as a party with a singular mindset i.e. how to battle corruption. The party in its manifesto has tried to cover everything from corruption to international issues with a comment that it would not tolerate cross-border terrorism.

Kejriwal also said that the AAP was not limited by ideological orthodoxies in both domestic and international economic issues.
