If AAP Wins, Goa Families To Get 300 Units Free Electricity: Arvind Kejriwal

“If Delhi can, why can’t Goa?” Arvind Kejriwal promised to waive all the old electricity bills if his party wins.

Each family in Goa will get up to 300 units of electricity free per month if Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) wins in the state Assembly elections due in February next year, said the Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal at a press conference in Goa on Wednesday.

“Every family will get up to 300 units of electricity free per month. We will start on a clean slate. Once the AAP government is formed in Goa, 87 per cent of consumers will start getting zero electricity bill,” the Delhi CM added.

“Despite Goa being a power-surplus state, they face frequent power-cuts,” he said. “If people in Delhi can get free electricity, then why not free power for people in Goa,” he added.

Mr. Kejriwal said that the people of Goa have seen how the Delhi government has been providing free electricity to its residents. “If Delhi can do it, why can’t Goa?” he asked.

He said that he will be fixing the defective power transmission lines which are responsible for the irregular power supply.

The MLAs who left Congress and other parties to join the BJP after the last Assembly elections in Goa were slammed by Mr. Kejriwal.

“The party (Congress) which had won 17 seats is now left with only five MLAs whereas the party (BJP) which had won only 13 seats is currently having 28 MLAs,” the Delhi CM said.

“These MLAs who switched sides claimed that they were joining the BJP to get people’s work done. Did they do the people’s work as they claimed? Now people are saying that they switched sides for money. People feel betrayed,” he said.

A day after Congress MLA Navjot Singh Sidhu tweeted that the AAP has always recognised his vision and work for Punjab, Mr. Kejriwal said that he felt “encouraged” as even opposition leaders are talking about his party.
