New Delhi – Cheaper electricity, decentralisation of power and a Delhi Lokpal bill are among the promises the Aam Admi Party (AAP) has made in its manifesto for the Dec 4 assembly elections released Wednesday.

Announcing the manifesto, AAP leader Yogendra Yadav said the party will undertake a “radical experiment” of decentralising power by organising “mohalla sabhas” (colony assemblies).
“Mohalla sabhas will be given some funds every year, and the peo! ple will decide what they want for their areas. Decisions will not be taken by MLAs or officials,” Yadav told reporters.

“Rates of electricity will be slashed to half, we will change the entire system of electricity distribution which is at present being manipulated by power discoms,” he said.

He added that control of the police will be brought under the Delhi government. At present, Delhi Police is under the jurisdiction of the union government.
