The Delhi Electricity Regulatory Commission on Friday increased power tariff by 5%, which was neutralised by the Delhi government by announcing a subsidy to consumers who consume up to 400 units.
"The subsidy being offered by the Delhi government will go from the state exchequer, from the taxes the government has collected from all of us. Also, we know for sure that the tariff will go up by at least 300% immediately after the elections. The Delhi government is trying to make fool of all us," Goel said.
He said the BJP will hold candlelight marches across the city, including outside the Chief Minister's residence.
The Delhi BJP has already announced that the tariff will be slashed by 30% if it comes to power after the assembly elections in November this year,
"We will bring in more power discoms and create competition. It will automatically bring down the tariff," Goel said.
