Punjab Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann going to free electric bill up to 300 units. After Delhi Punjab is also follow the same path. Arbind Kejriwal’s aam aadmi party shown their before election promises after election win. This scheme should be impulse from this Friday.
CM Mann blasted past administrations for decades-long theft from the people of Punjab, saying “While all former administrations needed five full years to keep their commitment, our government has fulfilled its key guarantee within three months of taking office. Every family in Punjab will begin receiving 300 units of free electricity each month as of today.”
Power users are still wary about the free power announcement, though. They worry that the government will set requirements in order to receive this assistance. The Punjab State Power Corporation Limited (PSPCL) is yet to get a notification on the free power issue.
Earlier in the morning, Arvind Kejriwal quoted from a report by Comptroller and Auditor General (CAG) that the Delhi government had a revenue surplus from 2015–16 to 2019–20. He added, the numbers were the “biggest proof of its honesty” and “AAP’s honesty has deprived the opponents of their sleep.” Notably, residents of Delhi also receive a similar dole of free power as part the AAP government’s initiatives. The poll promise in Punjab had come in for severe criticism from opposition parties which stated that the economic situation of Punjab was in stark contrast to the national capital.
