New Delhi, April 2: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Sunday announced that Delhi tenants will also get free water and subsidized electricity to lure Delhiites in the view of upcoming civic polls.
“Those staying in rented houses don’t get benefit of low water and electricity tariff. After municipal elections, we will make sure even they receive the benefit,” Kejriwal tweeted.
The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) convener also asked the people of Delhi not to vote for the Congress or the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).
“The BJP hiked the electricity rates in Uttarakhand and Madhya Pradesh. If you vote for the Congress or the BJP in the civic polls, they would hike electricity and water rates in Delhi as well,” he said.
Delhi’s three municipal corporations with a total 272 members go to polls on April 23 and the results would be declared on April 26.
