Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal announced free consumption of electricity to the residents of Delhi upto 200 units on Thursday.
After the Delhi Electricity Regulatory Commission (DERC) eased the fixed electricity charges on domestic consumption on July 31, the Delhi CM declared such a move on Thursday.
Delhi deputy CM Manish Sisodia tweeted, “Every family deserves a life of dignity. Just like good education & healthcare, a basic quantum of electricity to run lights/fans at home is essential for that.”
The Kejriwal government will face the assembly election test in Delhi in February 2020.
