No hike in electricity tariffs in Delhi for 5th consecutive year: Kejriwal

Manish Sisodia tweeted: "Just like good education and health care, a basic quantum of electricity to run lights/fans at home is essential for that." He posted with the hashtag #PehleHalfAbMaaf.

"This is not the decision of (Arvind) Kejriwal's party. This is the result of the BJP's struggle... We can see it by two angles that it is the strategy to attract people before the elections. They have looted 7,000 crore from Delhi people. When they will refund that?" Delhi BJP chief Manoj Tiwari said.
