Navjot Singh Sidhu, Lagislators Sahib Singh Chauhan, Prof. Jagdish Mukhi, Dr. Harsh Vardhan, Ramesh Bidhuri, Dharm Dev Solanki, O.P. Babbar, Ravinder Bansal, Mohan Singh Bist, Dr. S.C.L.

Presidents, Mandal Presidents, Pradesh Officer Bearers, Senior workers participated in the Dharna-Demonstration today. It continued for three hours. The Demonstrators were demanding dismissal of Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit who is hand-in-glove with the private power companies.

Addressing the Dharna Predesh President Sh. Vijender Gupta told that the former Chairman of DERC have found after examination of the ARR of the private power companies that they had earned profit of Rs. 6000/- crore during the last year. On this basis he did not allow the power tariff to be increased. Delhi Govt. is also providing subsidy of crores of rupees every year to the power companies. In this situation there is no justification of increasing power tariff. The new Chairman of the DERC has put a burden of increased power tariff of 22% on the people of Delhi at the behest of the Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit and private power companies. This has made the life of the people of Delhi difficult. Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit knows that the people shall defeat her party in the forthcoming elections because of her corruption hence she has increased the power tariff to take revenge from the people. Due to the power tariff hike the prices of all the commodities including Metro Rail fare shall increase. It will make the life of the poor people living in Delhi difficult. Migration out of Delhi will increase which will ultimately affect trade and industries besides the life of the people.

Leader of the opposition in Delhi Legislative Assembly Prof. Vijay Kumar Malhotra told that power was privatize on the first July 2002 in Delhi. That time the Chief Minister had told that there are many benefits of privatization. The people did not get any benefit but the companies benefited from it. National Genl. Secy. Sh. Vijay Goel told that the Chief Minister of Delhi has done wrong to the people of Delhi. The people ask her that what happened to the promises made to the people of Delhi by the Chief Minister at the time of privatization. Was the power privatized in Delhi by the Congress Govt. only to loot the people? Pradesh Co-Incharge Sh. Javjot Singh Sidhu told that after the reports of Shunglu Committee and CAG it has become clear that the Chief Minister of Delhi committed bungling of crores in CWG. This should be inquired by the CBI. Only inquiry would not be sufficient, the Chief Minister should be arrested before inquiry so that she may not destroy the proofs and influence the witness.
