Aam Aadmi Party National Convener Arvind Kejriwal has announced an indefinite fast and a civil disobedience movement against rising electricity and water prices in Delhi. Kejriwal will go on his indefinite fast from March 23.

While announcing his protest and hunger strike, Kejriwal appealed to the residents of Delhi not to pay their electricity bill from March 23 and added that he will not pay his Ghaziabad residence electricity bill from the same date. Incidentally Ghaziabad is in Uttar Pradesh and not Delhi.

He also said only half the amount that appeared in the electricity bills of Delhi residents was justified. He alleged that corruption was behind the recent hike in electricity and water charges and blamed Delhi's Sheila Dikshit government and power distribution companies of trying to exploit the disunity among the people.
