The party also promised to reduce power tariff and enhance women's safety in the national capital.

The party has come out with a 70-point agenda for the polls which will see a battle between the AAP, the BJP and the Congress.

" Acting within constitutional framework AAP will use its moral nd political authority to push fr full statehood for Delhi," the party said.

"Aam Aadmi Party government will keep its promise of reducing electricity bills by half," it said.
