After promising to waive off property tax if voted to power in MCD, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Sunday announced that the relief of low tariffs for water and electricity will be extended to tenants as well. He said those living in rented houses will also get free water and subsidised electricity if the AAP comes to power in the civic corporations. “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.

He leader also appealed to 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.
