Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) will provide free electricity up to 300 units, waive off all pending bills and ensure 24-hour electricity in Punjab, if it wins the assembly polls in the state scheduled next year, Delhi chief minister and AAP national convenor said on June 29.

The AAP government provides 200 units of free electricity to every household in Delhi.

"Punjab produces electricity but the tariffs are most expensive here. We do not produce electricity in Delhi and yet the electricity rates are cheapest. This is because there is a nexus of the Punjab government with the discoms. We have to break this nexus like we did in Delhi to ensure we have the cheapest electricity rates here as well," Kejriwal said in Chandigarh.


Earlier in the day as he set out from Delhi, Kejriwal proclaimed, in a tweet, that Punjab was getting ready for a "new dawn".
