After water, Delhi's AAP govt moves to reduce power bills
After delivering on their poll promise of providing free water to Delhiites, the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) government on Tuesday initiated steps to reduce power bills by 50%.
The Delhi government will on Tuesday decide on an audit of power companies, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said.
"The cabinet will meet and discuss audit of power companies. Delhi government has examined the case, and we feel CAG can audit all three (power) companies," Kejriwal said Tuesday.
"I am going to meet the CAG... All three companies have to be given opportunity of being heard. They can say why they shall not be audited," he said.
Kejriwal added that the Delhi cabinet will meet 5 p.m.
The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), in its election manifesto, promised to reduce electricity bills by half.
The AAP government Monday announced 20 kilo litres of free water per month (approx 667 litres per day) for households having metered water connection, moving in on the first promise the party made to the Delhi electorate.
