Other parties, too, were quick to mock Mr Kejriwal and made their own announcements. The Congress, desperate to make inroads in MCD, has promised a rebate on commercial property tax.
Delhi Congress chief Ajay Maken said the AAP has not yet fulfilled its promises of "free WiFi, and marshals in DTC buses". "Mr Kejriwal is making a fool of people. 70 per cent of Delhi doesn't pay residential property tax," said Delhi Congress chief Ajay Maken.
Fighting anti-incumbency and corruption charges in the MCD, the BJP also accused the AAP of being opportunistic and made promises like providing subsidised food grains.
"How can they abolish house tax? Doing away with house tax will require constitutional amendment," said Manoj Tewari, BJP's Delhi chief.
The AAP, however, said there are no legal hurdles and they will keep their promises. "Like we halved electricity bills and gave free water to 12.5 lakh people, we will also abolish house tax," said Manish Sisodia, Deputy Chief Minister of Delhi.
"If the AAP thinks that MCD can be run without taxes, why don't they announce that the state government will give grant to each MCD? Why make it conditional on AAP winning elections?" Mr Yadav asked. The party has promised a pollution and garbage-free Delhi.
Elections to the 272 wards in three municipal corporations are scheduled for April 23. The results will be announced on April 26.
