New Delhi: Delhi Chief Minister and Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) convenor Arvind Kejriwal has announced that he will provide free electricity across the country, scrap Agnipath scheme for the military, provide 2 crore jobs, and introduce minimum support price (MSP) scheme for farmers if he forms the government after the Lok Sabha elections.
