Delhi civic polls: Free water, power subsidy to tenants, tweets Kejriwal
New Delhi : To woo the voters in the upcoming Delhi MCD polls, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Sunday 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.
दिल्ली में किरायदारों को बिजली पानी की कम दरों का फ़ायदा नहीं मिल रहा। MCD चुनाव के बाद किरायदारों को भी इसका फ़ायदा दिलाएँगे।— Arvind Kejriwal (@ArvindKejriwal) April 2, 2017
The AAP leader also appealed to the people of Delhi not to vote for the Congress or the 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.
भाजपा ने उत्तराखण्ड और MP में बिजली रेट बढ़ा दिए। MCD में भाजपा/कोंग्रेस को वोट दिया तो ये दिल्ली में भी बिजली पानी के रेट बढ़ा देंगे— Arvind Kejriwal (@ArvindKejriwal) April 2, 2017
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.
