The electricity connection of Shazia Ilmi, an Aam Adami Party (AAP) candidate from RK Puram, was snapped by BSES officials in the presence of eight police personnel for non-payment of bills. Furious AAP volunteers protested near RK Puram police station, demanding that the police and BSES officials cut the connections of BJP supremo Rajnath Singh (he has dues of over Rs 5.50 lakh), Jagdish Tytler (over Rs 10 lakh) and Ram Vilas Paswan (over Rs 1.50 lakh), to mention a few. No action has been taken against them for months. The bijli-paani satyagraha is going to be a protracted struggle, AAP workers say, accusing the Congress and BJP of pursuing a politics of vendetta.
