Ahead of assembly elections in Punjab next year, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Tuesday promised 300 units of free electricity per month for each household in that state if his Aam Aadmi Party wins the polls.

The AAP leader also promised round-the-clock power supply in Punjab and waiver of pending electricity bills if his party is voted to power.

A day before his visit to Chandigarh on Tuesday, Kejriwal had said his party, if voted to power in Punjab, will provide free electricity.

"...In Delhi we provide 200 units of free electricity to every family. The women are very happy. Women in Punjab are also very unhappy with inflation. The AAP government will also provide free electricity in Punjab. See you tomorrow in Chandigarh," Kejriwal had tweeted in Punjabi on Monday.

Earlier on June 21, Kejriwal announced that the party's chief ministerial candidate for Punjab will be from the Sikh community.

Ever since the news broke out on Twitter, it has been going viral. While many are waiting for AAP to step in Punjab, others are criticising them for delivering their promises.

Here's a look at public reaction to AAP's entry in Punjab.
