Arvind Kejriwal Attacks Anil Ambani on Power Controversy

Delhi government on Tuesday (June 14) attacked BSES-run discoms owned by Anil Ambani-headed Reliance ADAG over alleged corruption, their “atrocious” performance and the “unprecedented” power outages across the national capital. In a letter to Ambani, Delhi Power Minister Satyender Jain asked him to come down to the city next week for a meeting, alleging that the discoms that supply power to nearly 70 per cent of the city have started “fudging” data to show improvement following stern warnings from the government. BSES entities BRPL (BSES Rajdhani Power Limited) and BYPL (BSES Yamuna Power Limited) supply electricity to around 12 lakh and 16 lakh customers respectively. The city’s power sector was privatised in 2002. “Performances of BSES so far have been atrocious…The expectation was that you will bring down tariffs and install a world class power system in the capital city of Delhi, which would compare better than power system in any other capital in the world. However, you have failed to do so. “There are also allegations of corruption and financial irregularities including siphoning off funds by your companies. Some of the allegations have been corroborated in CAG’s draft report and in earlier DERC (Delhi Electricity Regulatory Commission) orders,” Jain wrote.
