Gujarat elections: Aam Aadmi Party's national convener Arvind Kejriwal on Thursday promised that his party will provide free electricity up to 300 units per month if voted to power in Gujarat where polls are due this year.

Addressing people at a town hall meeting in Surat, the Delhi chief minister also guaranteed an uninterrupted power supply without any cuts.

"I am giving you a guarantee. If you find any fault later, you are free not to vote for AAP in the next election. We will fulfill all the guarantees once we come to power in the state," he said.

Kejriwal also said that all pending electricity bills issued before December 31, 2021, will be waived.

The AAP leader arrived in Surat late Wednesday night on his second visit to the state this month.

He had said that in the next few weeks, the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) would share with the people of Gujarat its agenda on what it plans to do for them if voted to power in the state.

He had claimed that the people of Gujarat were fed up with 27 years of the BJP rule and wanted a change.

Kejriwal last visited Gujarat on July 3, when he held a town hall on the issue of free electricity in Ahmedabad.

Presenting the "Delhi model," he said free electricity is possible in Gujarat if corruption is eliminated.

The AAP has made free electricity a major poll plank in Gujarat, where polls are due in December.
