New Delhi: Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) convener Arvind Kejriwal has said he will expose scams connected to electricity and water supply in New Delhi on Friday.

Kejriwal said he will expose 'evidence of connivance' between Sheila Dikshit-led Delhi government and private power distribution companies.

"Why have electricity and water prices shot thro the roof in Delhi? Evidence of huge corruption. People paying for Sheila's corruption," Kejriwal tweeted on Thursday.

"Tomo (tomorrow) v present why elect prices increased in Delhi. Evidence of connivance betn (between) Sheila Dikshit and elect cos," he said.

Kejriwal said: "Elect (electricity) prices in Delhi shud (should) actually be half of what u r paying today."

Kejriwal stirred a storm in the political galaxy as he started levelling corruption charges against several top brass quite regularly last year.

In his series of allegations, Kejriwal’s first target was Congress president Sonia Gandhi’s son-in-law Robert Vadra. Kejriwal “exposed” nexus between Vadra and the Haryana government and real-estate firm DLF. Kejriwal then targeted BJP president Nitin Gadkari and "exposed" a nexus between the political leader and the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) ruling the coalition government in Maharashtra.

The social activist turned activist fought a pitched political battle against External Affairs Minister Salman Khurshid over charges of embezzlement brought against the Congress leader’s charity trust.

Kejriwal also targeted industrialists Mukesh and Anil Ambani and Jet Airways owner Naresh Goyal, in his series of high profile corruption and financial impropriety ‘exposes’ and accused them of holding Swiss bank accounts with black money deposits.

The AAP architect did not spare Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi ahead of the Assembly polls in the state, alleging that Modi favoured Adani group by manipulating bids on power purchase and also bought peace with Congress and judiciary on the acts by doling out sops in forms of lands.
