After conducting a ‘burn power bills’ protest earlier last week, the India Against Corruption (IAC) team led by Arvind Kejriwal decided on Sunday to reach out to every house in the city as part of the strategy to spread awareness on the issue among Delhiites.
At a meeting attended by about 500-odd volunteers from across the city, the IAC campaigners decided to go from house to house asking people to not pay electricity bills. “If at all the power connection is severed, we will all reach that particular house and ensure that power is restored,” said an IAC member.
IAC has claimed that power discoms have started a rethink on slashing rates after their last Sunday’s agitation at Jantar Mantar. The meeting, held at Priyadarshini Vihar, decided that the city would be divided as per the Parliamentary and assembly constituencies. “Each constituency will have a team of 50 to 150 volunteers,” the member said. IAC’s campaign against rising electricity bills has been viewed as a precursor to its political debut during Delhi assembly elections next year.
