Chandigarh, June 29 (TIWN) Eyeing Punjab Assembly elections, slated for March next year, AAP national convener and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Tuesday announced to provide 300 units of free power to every household in the state.

Announcing a slew of pre-poll sops, he said here that his party will provide uninterrupted round-the-clock power supply and waiver of pending electricity bills, if his Aam Aadmi Party forms the next government in the state.

"It will take three-four years for us to upgrade the infrastructure, and then we will be able to provide uninterrupted power supply," he said.

The Chief Minister said, with the provision of 300 units free electricity to every household, 77-80 per cent households will get zero bill.

Taking a jibe at Congress leader and Chief Minister Amarinder Singh, he said it was surprising that Punjab "makes its own electricity, still is most expensive in the country".
