New Delhi: Amid raging ‘revdi culture’ or ‘freebies’ debate between Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Friday claimed that the whole world is inspired by his ‘Delhi model’. He also stated that the AAP’s ‘Delhi model is going to end dynastic politics (parivarwaad) and political friendships (dostwaad) in the country.

Kejriwal shared a claim made by a social media page of an AAP leader that Britain’s prime ministerial candidate Rishi Sunak is emulating AAP’s Delhi model and promising to cut the domestic electricity bill of UK citizens by around 200 pounds. 

It may be recalled here that the Delhi government had earlier launched a ‘free electricity scheme’ wherein all households in Delhi will get ‘free electricity’ if monthly consumption is below 200 units.
