The Delhi Pradesh Congress Committee (DPCC) has demanded an apology from former Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal for what it said not keeping his promise of providing 50 per cent subsidy on power bills to city consumers.
DPCC chief spokesperson and senior leader Mukesh Sharma said, “In the 49-day rule of the AAP, Kejriwal said so many lies that one by one, his lies are being exposed….”
He further said the Congress had always maintained that Kejriwal was betraying the power consumers in the capital. The DPCC said the matter was not restricted to giving exemption on power bills, but also the promise that it would withdraw the cases filed against 2,508 subscribers.
Sharma appealed to the voters and power consumers of Delhi that they should raise the question to the APP candidates in the parliamentary elections. The Congress said if Kejriwal could pay the rent of his house with people’s money, why was he not paying the bills of those who agitated from the donations received by the AAP.
The AAP government led by Kejriwal had announced a 50 per cent subsidy on power bills and waiver of penalty for those who had supported the party’s ‘bijli-paani andolan’ and refused to pay their electricity bills. Over 24,000 residents had taken part in the agitation.
