New Delhi, Apr 6 (PTI): AAP leader Arvind Kejriwal broke his indefinite fast against “inflated” power and water bills on the 15th day today, claiming that his protest has made power and water election issues for the upcoming Delhi polls in which Congress and BJP will be “wiped out”.

After breaking his fast in Sunder Nagri, he claimed people are fed up with both Congress and BJP.

“These parties will be wiped out in the elections. What is the outcome of my fast? It has made it clear that next election will be fought on the issues of power and water,” he said.

He alleged BJP and Congress are two sides of the same coin.

The fast also saw Hazare visiting Kejriwal at the protest site on March 29 and urging him to end his fast.

Later, Kejriwal also got the support of activists Aruna Roy and Medha Patkar, who had differences with him over his stand on the Lokpal Bill and anti-corruption movement entering politics.

They emphasised on the need for a CAG audit of private discoms in Delhi.
