New Delhi: The man whose power connection was reconnected by anti-corruption activist Arvind Kejriwal bowed to the law after he sold off his television set to take a loan and pay his bill dues. Roshan Sharma said, "My family and I were being harassed. So I sold our TV and took a loan to pay our Rs 4500-bill."
FIRs have been filed against the Delhi households whose power connections Kejriwal had personally restored last week. Kejriwal last week began a campaign against inflated electricity bills in Delhi and had dared the board to file an FIR against him for fixing connections.
