New Delhi: BJP on Wednesday slammed the Delhi government's decision to allow a waiver on the pending electricity bills of those consumers who took part in an AAP agitation saying that the move would be "unfair to taxpaying, law-abiding citizens."

"So many people took part over the last four years in the 'Bijli Andolan' initiated by BJP. Why is the benefit of the waiver being given to a select group only... All those who fought against power companies should have been included," said Delhi BJP president Vijay Goel.

He was speaking at the launch of the party's 'Ek note- Kamal par Vote' campaign in the Naveen Shahdara and East Delhi district units of BJP.

The Arvind Kejriwal government today announced that consumers who did not pay their electricity bills as part of AAP's power agitation will have to shell out only half of their total dues, a decision which will cost the exchequer Rs 6 crore.
