Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Sunday made five promises to the people in poll-bound Chandigarh if the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) comes to power.

"If AAP comes to power in Chandigarh, we'll end corruption. For every municipality work, people spend money & take offs from offices due to long queues. So municipality officials will come to your residences for work,like in Delhi," said Kejriwal.

"These garbage dump mountains, like in Daddu Majra Colony, will be removed. We'll make sure Chandigarh becomes the most beautiful city in all of Asia, yet again. Water & electricity is free in Delhi. Chandigarh will also get free water," he added.
