Kejriwal begins indefinite fast in Delhi

New Delhi, March 23, 2013 (IANS):
Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Arvind Kejriwal Saturday began an indefinite hunger strike against increased power and water bills in the national capital.

Kejriwal began his fast in the morning at a house near the sub-divisional magistrate's office in Sunder Nagri area in east Delhi. According to the AAP leader, the house owner had to borrow money to pay his water and electric bills.

"The time has come to motivate people against illegal rise in taxes by the Delhi government," Kejriwal had said Friday.

AAP members will also protest in 264 wards across Delhi and launch a door-to-door campaign, asking people not to pay bills according to the increased tariff.

Kejriwal alleged that Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit had colluded with power and water companies and illegally increased the tariff.
