Arvind Kejriwal promises free electricity, improved healthcare if AAP wins 2024 elections

New Delhi/IBNS: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, who is out on interim bail after 50 days of judicial custody in the Delhi liquor policy case, Sunday promised free electricity and improved healthcare if voted to power.

Kejriwal unveiled AAP's '10 guarantees' if his party wins the 2024 Lok Sabha elections comprising a broad spectrum of public welfare including free electricity.

"BJP has always failed on its promises; my guarantees have proven track record. People have to take a call whether to go for 'Kejriwal ki Guarantee' or 'Modi Guarantee," the AAP supremo said on day 2 of his campaigning after being released from jail on interim bail.

"Out of the 10 guarantees, the first guarantee is that we will provide 24-hour electricity in the country. The country can generate 3 lakh MW of electricity but the usage is only 2 lakh MW. Our country can produce electricity more than the demand.

"We have done it in Delhi and Punjab, we will do it in the country also. We will provide up to 200 units of free electricity to all the poor. It will cost Rs. 1.25 lakh crore, we can arrange it," Kejriwal said.

On Saturday he held his first press conference where he claimed that the BJP would not get more than 220 seats and won't be able to form the government.

The Supreme Court has granted Kejriwal interim bail to enable him to campaign in the ongoing Lok Sabha elections.

He, however, has to surrender on June 2, a day after the last phase of the seven-phase poll is over.
