New Delhi: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal promises 300 Units of free electricity for every family, Arvind Kejriwal tweeted Tuesday to say he is en route to Punjab – where battle lines between the ruling Congress and the AAP have been clearly drawn ahead of next year’s election. The announcement, that he made on his Twitter handle, came amid efforts by the ruling Congress in the state to offer 300 units of free electricity to all households, a key promise the party had made before the last Assembly elections which the party high command now wants to be fulfilled in a time-bound manner.
Arvind Kejriwal is the National Convener of the Aam Aadmi Party and Chief Minister of Union Territory of Delhi. He was also a member of India Against Corruption campaign led by Anna Hazare against the growing corruption in the country. Kejriwal went forward and formed his own political party after an unsuccessful attempt at bringing the Jan Lokpal Bill through the IAC campaign in 2012.
A graduate of IIT Kharagpur, Kejriwal is a mechanical engineer by profession and also worked as a joint commissioner of the Income Tax Department. He is also a Magsaysay award winner for his work on the grassroots through his organisation Parivartan. Kejriwal was first elected as the Delhi Chief Minister in 2012 but resigned after 49 days claiming that he was unable to bring the Jan Lokpal Bill he had promised because his party did not enjoy a full majority in the house. His party later won 67 out of 70 seats during the 2015 assembly elections.
Arvind Kejriwal promises 300 Units of free electricity for every family
Earlier on Monday, Kejriwal had tweeted, “In Delhi, we give 200 units of electricity free to every family. Women are very happy. The women of Punjab are also hit hard due to price rise. In Punjab, too AAP government will give free electricity. Let’s meet tomorrow in Chandigarh.”The announcement, that he made on his Twitter handle, came amid efforts by the ruling Congress in the state to offer 300 units of free electricity to all households, a key promise the party had made before the last Assembly elections which the party high command now wants to be fulfilled in a time-bound manner.
There have been widespread protests in urban and rural areas against breakdown in power supply. In many places, in rural areas, employees of Punjab State Power Corporation Limited (PSPCL) have been attacked by irate farmers who have not been able to get the promised eight-hour uninterrupted power supply for paddy sowing
While addressing a press conference in Chandigarh, Arvind Kejriwal promises 300 Units of free electricity for every family. Kejriwal announced that 300 electricity units will be given free to domestic consumers in Punjab and all arrears in electricity bills will be waived. “If elected, the AAP government in Punjab will give every household in the state free electricity up to 300 units. By doing this, around 77 per cent to 80 per cent of people of Punjab will have zero electricity bill, he said. He also promised a 24×7 power supply in Punjab.

❌सबसे महंगी बिजली पंजाब में
❌दिल्ली बिजली नहीं बनाती
✅सबसे सस्ती बिजली दिल्ली में
क्यूंकि Punjab में बिजली कंपनियों और सरकार की सांठ-गांठ है
सरकार बदलने से Delhi की तरह Punjab में भी बिजली सस्ती होगी- CM @ArvindKejriwal#KejriwalDiGuarantee pic.twitter.com/6sH8nJvt5h
That tweet followed one from last night, in which Mr Kejriwal promised “300 units of free electricity” – a poll promise that won the AAP two Delhi elections and one he is expected to make in Punjab too.”In Delhi, we provide 200 units of free electricity to every family. Women are very happy. Women in Punjab are unhappy with inflation. AAP will provide 200 units of free electricity for all in Punjab,” Mr Kejriwal said.
That promise comes as the Congress high command pushes Amarinder Singh to make a similar promise – to ensure 200 units of power free for households, especially those in urban areas. The AAP is targeting the issue of inflated power bills – which have been protested by state employees, unemployed teachers and opposition parties – to target the Punjab government. Mr Kejriwal has also said the AAP’s chief ministerial candidate will be from the Sikh community.
Arvind Kejriwal promises 300 Units of free electricity for every family. Arvind Kejriwal is expected to address a press conference in Chandigarh at 1 pm – an event for which permission, his party yesterday claimed, had been denied.
“Captain Amarinder’s fear of Kejriwal has reached a point where his office has denied us permission to hold a press conference at the pre-decided venue,” party leader Raghav Chadha tweeted Monday. Mr Singh hit back swiftly (and sarcastically), refusing the claim and adding “If he (Arvind Kejriwal) wants, I’d be happy to arrange his lunch too“.

Punjab में AAP की सरकार देगी 300 Unit FREE Electricity!— AAP (@AamAadmiParty) June 29, 2021
अब आप कहेंगे Delhi में 200 Unit मुफ़्त और Punjab में 300 Unit क्यों?
क्योंकि दिल्ली में 200 यूनिट बिजली मुफ़्त है और 200 से 400 यूनिट तक बिजली का Bill आधा आता है!

Nine days ago he was in Amritsar to induct former IPS officer Vijay Pratap Singh, who was part of the team that investigated the 2015 Kotkapura police firing incident.
The police team’s report into that incident was quashed by the Punjab and Haryana High Court in April – an action that has added to rumblings within the Congress against Amarinder Singh.
Arvind Kejriwal promises 300 Units of free electricity for every family. Sparring between the two parties and their leaders has escalated steadily over the past few weeks with the 2022 election in mind. The two leaders have traded allegations – Mr Singh called Mr Kejriwal a “slimy fellow in the habit of lying” and was accused of helping the BJP with the controversial farm laws.
