With Delhi Assembly elections just two weeks away, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has promised each and every household that it will slash their electricity bill by 50% if the party is voted to power.
It seems that the BJP has been highly inspired by the announcement that the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) made in December 2014. At that time, the Arvind Kejriwal-led party had said that it would provide free water along with 50% reduction in electricity bill to every household if voted to power.
Now, the BJP party too has hoardings, showing photographs of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP's chief ministerial candidate Kiran Bedi across Delhi, wherein the party has promised to cut down power tariff by 50% by providing LED bulbs at cheap rates. Not to forget, in the last Assembly elections, the party had promised to reduce electricity bill by 30%.
In the last elections, one of the main promises made by the Aam Aadmi Party was reduction in electricity bill; and this played a key role in helping the AAP form the government in Delhi.
Now, the BJP doesn't want to leave any stone unturned to win the Delhi Assembly elections. Even if they have to go AAP way it doesn't matter, as everything is fair in this 'war to retain power'.
