Kejriwal’s power crusade irresponsible: CM


Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit has slammed India Against Corruption activist Arvind Kejriwal’s campaign against inflated electricity bills in Delhi, calling it ‘irresponsible’. “In New Delhi, record electricity was consumed, more than 5,500 MW. You and I have done so. Naturally the prices will go up. In this situation, to make irresponsible statements is wrong,” Dikshit said.

Meanwhile, with all appeals falling into the deaf ears of the Delhi Electricity Regulatory Commission (DERC), the Federation of RWAs has now sent an online petition to the Prime Minister demanding a CAG audit into the accounts of the discoms.

For the past over one year, various federations of RWAs have been writing to DERC chief PD Sudhakar and the CM to conduct a CAG audit into the accounts of these discoms. “The balance sheets of these discoms reflect that they are making profits. The DERC annual report also shows that these discoms are making profits. The audit conduced by the Power Finance Corporation Limited also shows that there are no losses,” said BS Vohra of the East Delhi RWA Joint Front.

Dikshit had also ordered a CAG inquiry into the accounts of these discoms and had also told the Delhi HC that a CAG audit will be done.
