Delhi Minister accepts Goa counterpart’s dare for debate on power tariff

Delhi Power Minister Satyendra Jain has accepted his Goa counterpart, Nilesh Cabral’s dare to debate the merits of the Delhi power tariff model versus the one in place in Goa. Jain on Tuesday tweeted his acceptance of the ‘power’ debate challenge, following a dare thrown last week by Cabral.

“Nilesh Bab, I heard u have said that u would like to debate with power minister of Delhi on AAP’s free and 24×7 electricity announcement. I accept ur challenge. I will be in Goa this Sunday. I hope Sunday 3 pm is ok with u for the debate. See you there,” Jain said.

Last week, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal in an announcement made in pollbound Goa, had said, that if the AAP comes to power, the first 300 units of power consumed by domestic households would be free, while also promising 24×7 uninterrupted power supply, on the lines of the Delhi government.

Kejriwal had also touted the power tariff model in Delhi as one which is better than the one implemented by the Bharatiya Janata Party-led government in the coastal state.
