Will the party, that makes its debut in this assembly elections, be able to live up to the promises? The party has released separate manifestos for each of the 70 constituencies, but questions are being raised about whether these promises can be implemented.

Power-packed promises AAP has promised to bring down the electricity expenditure of residents of Delhi by 50 per cent. To many, the promise may sound unrealistic. The licences of the companies which refuse to undergo an audit will stand cancelled.
However, whether these measures can actually bring down the cost of electricity by half hasn’t been established with data or evidences. When asked about this, Yogendra Yadav, member of AAP, explained that there has been considerable reduction in transmission and distribution losses after privatisation of power distribution, but tariffs have been increased manifold.
The party has also assured that it will bring power companies under the ambit of RTI and will end monopoly by introducing more than one electricity provider in the market.
The electricity act, amended inhas this provision but it has not been implemented yet. For this, it has promised incentives and subsidies to providers and promoters.
Aam Aadmi Party manifesto promises free water, electricity
Individuals who install solar panels in their houses would be allowed to sell extra electricity to the grid. The parry like Gujarat and Tamil Nadu have already adopted this practise. The experiment, if successful in Delhi, will manitesto a big leap in the segment of renewable energy. No more tears for water The party has also proposed that households with water consumption of upto litres a day, irrespective of being located in slums or unauthorised colonies, will be given free supply of water.
AAP also plans to provide piped water to more thanpeople for the first time. A few analysts think that free water in large volumes may encourage wastage and corruption and the subsidy will put financial burden on the government.
AAP members, manifesgo, clarified that if the water usage exceeds litres, the tax will be charged for the entire usage. For water usage above 1, litres, additional charges will be imposed.

This will help government compensate for the money lost in subsidy. This may, however, help party win hearts of only the lower income groups. The party has also promised to revamp the sanitation, sewerage and health services infrastructure in the city. But the manifesto does not give any hint on how the party will rope in part for boosting all the facilities —by adding burden manifessto taxpayers or by introducing models like public-private partnership.
We are sure that the expenditure in buildingcommunity toilets will be less than that in a double-decker fly-over being promised by present chief minister and Congress-candidate Shiela Dikshit.
Besides, an honest government will be able to save a lot of mahifesto which would otherwise have gone into corrupt hands. The idea may have been inspired by the Rajasthan public health system which has already been promoting generic medicines.
All the decisions related to development work, their monitoring and disbursement of payments would be done through Mohalla Sabhas, which will have representatives of citizens of a particular area. The Kejriwal-led team has also promised more powers to gram sabhas of Delhi partty.
Their consent will be needed for any land acquisition and extension of Lal Dora-areas or land parcels which are part of village habitation. However, for Mohalla Sabhas to become a reality and function smoothly, the government will have to invest in capacity building and infrastructure. The demand, if fulfilled, is likely to have a direct impact on financial status of the national capital which at present gets many subsidies from the Centre.
