AAP goes back to 'bijli-paani' issues

The Aam Aadmi Party will go back to bijli-paani issues in its third phase of Delhi Dialogue, the party’s initiative to connect with different segments of voters.

At a public event slated for December 13, the party will lay down its blueprint on how to solve Delhi’s energy, electricity and water crisis.

While giving its poll plank of cheaper electricity a twist, the AAP said it will again slash electricity rates by 50 per cent up to 400 units per month for every household till the audit of the private power distribution companies by the Comptroller and Auditor General (CAG) is completed.

It claimed that the findings of the CAG audit will lead to a drastic cut in electricity tariffs. The party has been accusing power companies for “unjustified” tariff hikes.
Predicting a stark future for Delhi voters, the party claimed that if power tariff continues to increase at a steady rate, consumers will end up paying more than two-fold five years down the line.

Roped experts

“The AAP teams have already begun the engagement with different experts in the field of renewable energy, power grid companies, government and private undertakings in generation, transmission and distribution of electricity,” the AAP in a statement on Friday said.

It is also seeking expert advice on water related issues like drainage, sanitation and waste management. The party said, if re-elected, it will provide charge-free water to people of Delhi. 

Delhi Dialogue team led by party leaders Ashish Khaitan and Meera Sanyal said that following their Youth and women dialogues, six more phases of this public engagement programme will take place and it will conclude on January 18.

The forthcoming dialogues will be on rural issues, health and education, traders issues, Lokpal and transparency in governance, apart from traffic, parking and public transport issues.

The party said that conclusions of Delhi Dialogue will form the basis of the party manifesto for the coming Assembly elections.
