Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Sunday thanked the BJP for making its intentions clear that it will withdraw electricity subsidy if voted to power, saying it will give a chance to people to choose between "two conflicting models".

Addressing party volunteers at a gathering in East Delhi, Kejriwal said he was "pained" to read the interview of Delhi BJP leader Vijay Goel that BJP intends to withdraw electricity subsidy if voted to power.

"He is a tall BJP leader. He does not have a problem with getting 4,000 units of free electricity every month as a member of Parliament but has an issue with the common man getting 200 units of free electricity. It is a good thing that the BJP has made its intentions clear ahead of polls in Delhi," Kejriwal told his volunteers.

Kejriwal said, "The BJP leader never made any demand to withdraw the power subsidy given by the Centre to MPs, but is now opposed to benefits being provided to the people. He continues to accept massive subsidies on food, even as the people suffer. But I want to thank him for saying this publicly before the election. Now the people can choose between the two conflicting models."

He urged the volunteers to take leave from work and start preparations for the upcoming polls in Delhi which are to be held early next year.

Kejriwal asked the party volunteers to be proud of their work. "The work done by the Delhi government has earned us respect. Now when you tell people that you are associated with the Aam Aam Party, people look up to you," he told the party volunteers.

Earlier in the day, AAP leaders slammed Goel for his comments on removal of electricity subsidy if voted to power. "Today they have made it clear that BJP does not support the schemes launched by the Delhi government led by CM Arvind Kejriwal to give free electricity un to 200 units. The BJP is always anti-poor and anti-people. They always try to finish the benefits given to people," said senior AAP leader Sanjay Singh.
