Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal on Monday announced 200 units of free electricity for all in Punjab if his Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) forms the government in the state going to polls early next year.
Making the announcement in a tweet, Kejriwal said high inflation had made it difficult for women to run households and the free electricity would make things easier for them.
“…In Delhi we provide 200 units of free electricity to every family. The women are very happy. Women in Punjab are also very unhappy with inflation. The AAP government will also provide free electricity in Punjab. See you tomorrow in Chandigarh,” Kejriwal tweeted in Punjabi.
Kejriwal will arrive in Chandigarh on Tuesday as AAP intensifies its planning and preparations for the upcoming assembly election in the state.
People are getting free electricity upto 200 units in the national capital and hundreds of thousands of consumers get zero electricity bills, especially in the winter months.
