The election to the Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) set for April 23 has 272 seats up for grabs. It seems that this time there will be a tough competition between the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP). The results will be declared on April 25.
Amid the election fever, the AAP today launched a campaign – #mystorybijlipanisaving on Twitter, in which people from Delhi shared their stories of how happy they were due to low electricity bills and free water.
The campaign got an overwhelming response with people sharing their stories on the microblogging site. It seems that the Delhites don’t ‘hate’ Kejriwal after all!
With less than 20 days left for the election, the AAP will look to maintain its dominance, while the BJP would want to continue its national win streak.
Here’s how the Twitterati reacted:
Elec bill 14.8.2012 : 2260
Elec bill 16.3.2017 : 530
Annual saving : 20760

Taking to Twitter, a user shared a video and wrote: “Electricity bill on 14.8.2012: Rs 2260. Electricity bill on 16.3.2017: Rs 530. Hence, annual saving: Rs 20760.”
“This is life changing impact,” he added in his Tweet.

Criticism comes along with appreciation, while people were praising Kejriwal, many criticised the AAP and its chief over several reason and accused them of spreading false propaganda.
