Congress hits back over Kejriwal's outbursting rally in Punjab

Arvind Kejriwal

Congress attacked Aam Aadmi Party official cum leader Arvind Kejriwal on Tuesday over his press conference, calling it a "game of deception". Congress Minister Charanjit Singh Channi told reporters that following the Punjab government's announcement of free electricity, Kejriwal was "rushing to Delhi".

“Arvind Kejriwal's press conference in Punjab was a game of deception. Shortly after our government announced 300 units of free electricity to the people, it rushed to Delhi and came here, ”Channi told.

The premier of Delhi and the national AAP organizer on Tuesday made a pre-election pledge of 300 units of free electricity for each family. Calling it "Kejriwal's guarantees, not those of the Captain (Amarinder Singh) promising" the Delhi CM also promised to erase the pending debts of home buyers ", he added that his promise would definitely make women" especially happy ".

Kejriwal accused the Punjab government of creating "links" with private power companies and assured residents that the AAP, if elected, would ensure electricity day and night.

Following the announcement of Kejriwal, the former chairman and manager of Punjab State Power Corporation limited, BS Sran, told news agency that his pledge would call the country to take on a further financial burden of an additional $ 4,000-, 5,000, in addition to ₹ 10,000 plus crore spent by government on energy subsidies. Sran added that the promise of 300 units of free energy may not benefit the people because from the summer months the electricity consumption goes beyond that.

This will be the AAP's second Punjab entry, the first of which will be in the 2017 legislative elections. Kejriwal has promised to repeat the Delhi Model in Punjab, however the ruling Congress has expressed doubts, Channi told reporters that the AAP efforts that led to the election "will not help, he failed five years ago and will now fail,".
