Arvind Kejriwal, the Delhi Chief Minister, stated on Wednesday that if his Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) wins the state Assembly elections in February next year, each family in Goa will receive up to 300 free units of electricity per month. The AAP national convener announced four "guarantees," including that if his party is elected to power in the coastal state, he will waive all old electricity bills. Mr. Kejriwal also promised farmers in the state free electricity. “If people in Delhi can get free electricity, then why not free power for people in Goa,” Mr. Kejriwal stated. Despite the fact that Goa has a surplus of electricity, the coastal state experiences frequent power outages, he remarked. According to the AAP leader, the people of Goa now desire change. Mr. Kejriwal further mentioned that Goa residents are receiving large electricity bills that are not being addressed by the relevant department. Even opposition figures are talking about Mr. Kejriwal's party, 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 claimed that the AAP government provides “zero electricity bills” to 73 percent of Delhi residents. He blamed the erratic power supply on faulty power transmission lines, which he promised would be addressed. He also promised that justice would be served in a case involving the demolition of a church in Delhi's Chattarpur neighbourhood, claiming that the move was performed by the Delhi Development Authority, which is part of the Central government.
