Arvind Kejriwal's Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) all set to deliver over 6.38 lakh letters it collected from the Delhi people to Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit on Monday urging her to cut the power tariff.

Earlier, he was on an indefinite fast against "inflated" power bills, which has today entered its ninth day.

In a statement, Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) said a total of 6,38,707 letters were signed by Delhiites till last night and they will be submitted to Dikshit tomorrow morning.

The party alleged that the price of electricity and water had increased many folds in the capital due to corruption.

"As the number of Delhiites, who have decided not to pay their bills, swells day by day, the ball is in the court of Sheila Dikshit now. Would she listen to the voice of people who have elected her to power or continue to support private companies?" an AAP statement said.

On Kejriwal's health, the statement said despite weakness, his health parameters are within normal range.

"His blood pressure in the morning was 101/63, pulse 65 and sugar 121. He has lost 7 kg of weight since his fast began. His current weight is 58 kg," it said. (ANI)
