Kejriwal explained how 300 units of electricity can be given for free to the people of Uttarakhand.

Free electricity is becoming a winning formula for elections, as per the IANS-CVoter Live Tracker.

Ahead of the 2022 Assembly elections in different states, while AAP leader and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has announced to give free electricity in Uttarakhand, Samajwadi Party leader Akhilesh Yadav has promised free electricity in Uttar Pradesh.

As many as 50.29 percent of respondents in the survey said the promise of free electricity is becoming a winning formula for elections while 35.28 percent said no, a party can't win elections just by the promise of free electricity. Also, 50.92 percent said providing free electricity affects the revenue of the states, which affects other essential services that are provided to the public.

AAP's announcement came around a week after the state's ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) promised to provide free electricity up to 100 units per day and for above the people have to pay only 50 percent of their total electricity.

Having an experimented formula to provide subsidized power for the last six years in Delhi, Kejriwal explained how 300 units of electricity can be given for free to the people of Uttarakhand.

Replying to queries of reporters in Dehradun, the AAP head said: "We have not made this announcement just out of the air, we have made a calculated estimate for this. Uttarakhand's annual budget is around Rs 50,000 crore, of which only Rs 1,200 crore will be the cost for subsided electricity." (IANS/KB)
