    Now Delhi people save money and electricity both. In This way people can spend saved money on other things and saving electricity good for environment. We the people of Delhi has seen the change in Delhi. Such type of leader should be prime minister once at least

    Many villages in india not having 12 hrs /day electricity. Due to such metro city power supply for 24/7 it's facing burden on villagers. And these poor ppl living there life from decades to decades in same way. That need to stop. Govt need to focus more in villages / farmers.

    We delhites don't pay a penny and still get 24/7 electricity. Whereas UPwala pays thousands of rupees as bill, and still suffers from huge power cuts. 😂People of other states better question your corrupt govt ,where is your money going? rather than worrying about our freebies.

    How can you call it as freebies. These are all reductions that govt will pay by tax payer's money. It is productive to the welfare of people unlike giving away beer bottles, television sets and the likewise.

    Delhi is not BJP ruled state from last 21 years so whatever BJP got is only a bonus but loss for Delhities. Electricity companies warned Delhi govt of short of funds and soon Delhi people will have power cuts.

    Just giving free electricity is NOT going to cut it. Delhi government pt brakes to hike in electricity charges unless electricity suppliers agree to government Audit of their books. to which they obviously refused. Till 2013, these same companies showed huge fake losses every year and forced delhi govt to raise electricity rates. Since 2014. the charges have been frozen because delhi govt knows these companies were lying and making huge profits at cost of delhi tax payers. In addition, delhi has added capacity to meet electricity demand in delhi so now there are hardly any power cuts. Thats what people are happy about. Not just 200 units of free bijli. In addition there is free water supply, free healthcare, quality education, improved public transport that has contributed to delhi success. blindly copying free bijli is not going to cut it for these governents.

    Delhiites not a bad deal. Get free 200 units in the month of February instead of getting beaten.

    In delhi electricity is not free--- free for 200units. But if youe meter reading is 201... you have to pay for the whole. That way people try to save on electricity...

    Other states might try to copy the model of 'Kaam par vote', but it will be very hard for them to show their work in parallel to the massive widespread work done by AAP in Delhi. Its not just about water and electricity.
