Loot of electricity in the capital
DELHI GOVERNMENT IS MISLEADING THE PEOPLE BY PUBLISHING ADVERTISEMENTS AT THE COST OF PUBLIC EXCHEQUER - BJP
New Delhi, 6th Nov. BJP has accused Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit of misleading the people on the issue of electricity by presenting misleading data and completely misusing power.
In a joint statement, BJP Delhi Pradesh President Shri Vijender Gupta and Leader of the Opposition in Legislative Assembly Prof. Vijay Kumar Malhotra have said that it is the old habit of the Congress Party that when election approaches it tries to mislead the people by issuing confusing advertisements and attractive promises so that the innocent people may be entrapped in the jugglery of words by the Congress. The way in which the people have taught Congress Party a lesson in the Municipal Corporation elections, the same way they shall take revenge from the Congress in the elections to Delhi Assembly and Lok Sabha.
Both the leaders told that people of Delhi have understood the reality of the Congress Government during the last 14 years. Delhi Government benefited the power companies by conniving with them but the people have been made poorer by hefty power bills. Today the common man in Delhi has to spend 50 percent of his income to pay the power-water bills. The Government has put burden of so many taxes on the people that India does not look like a democratic country and that a democratically elected Government is working here.
BJP Delhi Pradesh President Shri Vijender Gupta told that had the Government been in favour of the people then today the power tariff should have been decreased by 23 percent. Former Chairman of DERC Brijendra Singh had passed orders for such decrease on the 3rd May, 2010. This order was to be published on the 5th May, 2010. In the mean time Delhi Government and power companies together prevented the DERC from decreasing power tariff. The new Chairman of DERC P.D. Sudhakar started working in favour of power companies. The result is that crores of people of Delhi are suffering due to hefty power bills.
Shri Gupta further told that the people of Delhi have already understood the political tactics of Central and Delhi Governments. This Government has lost the trust of the people. If the Government had any morality then it should have resigned. Unfortunately there is no place for the words like morality idealism Public Welfare, Social Welfare etc. in the dictionary on the Congress Party. This Government is writing new definitions of corruptions, loot and scams every day. The Congress Governments of Delhi and centre shall be among the most corrupt Governments in the history of India.
