Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has called an “emergency meeting” of his cabinet at his residence here on Thursday to discuss the power subsidy issue, officials said.

Ahead of the Lok Sabha elections, the Cabinet could take an “important decision” on energy subsidies for the coming year, they said.

The meeting will take place at 4 p.m., they said.

Kejriwal government is offering free electricity to consumers with monthly consumption of 200 units. A 50 percent subsidy will be given to those who use 201-400 units per month.
