Kejriwal asks Khattar govt to further lower power tariff

A day after the Haryana government announced to reduce the power tariff for domestic consumers, Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) convenor Arvind Kejriwal on Wednesday demanded that the electricity should be made as cheap as in the state like Delhi.

Taking to micro-blogging site, Twitter, the Delhi Chief Minister said, “Khattar sahib has reduced electricity price in Haryana but it (reduction) is insufficient. Electricity in Haryana too should be made as cheap as in Delhi .”
