BJP raised questions about electricity inflation in Delhi, AAP replied

Now Aam Aadmi Party and BJP are face to face regarding the electricity rates in Delhi. BJP alleges that Arvind Kejriwal government of Delhi has secretly increased the electricity prices. But now Aam Aadmi Party's reply has also come on this. AAP has said that BJP's problem is that wherever there is BJP government, the problem of electricity supply has not been resolved but it keeps on making various allegations against the Delhi government regarding electricity.

In fact, Delhi BJP President Virendra Sachdeva alleged in a press conference that on the instructions of the Kejriwal government, BSES Rajdhani wrote a letter to the DERC Secretary on April 25. This letter said that we are increasing the PPAC (Power Purchase Adjustment Charge) by 8.75% on the basis of the old circular. Virendra Sachdeva says that DERC is an unorganized body and is not in a position to give permission for the increase and neither did it give permission for the increase.

Not only this, Virendra Sachdeva also alleges that the government and Discoms have colluded and have increased the PPAC imposed in electricity bills by 8.75% from this month of July 2024, due to which there has been a huge increase in the electricity bills of the poor to the rich, especially the middle class.

Virendra Sachdeva also claimed that his own bill has more than doubled this time. Virendra Sachdeva said that this is all a game of PPAC and the price was increased without informing. This government (AAP government) promises to give 200 units free which is a lie. Virendra Sachdeva asked why did PPAC not take permission from DERC before increasing the electricity price for three months? This is a direct loot of the people of Delhi. He said that the demand for electricity increases in the summer season, in such a situation the government should buy electricity at a reasonable price three or six months in advance, but the Delhi government allows the disaster to come and then the electricity is increased.

AAP gave a befitting reply

But now the Aam Aadmi Party government of Delhi has given a befitting reply to these claims of BJP. AAP leader and Delhi government minister Atishi said that BJP has been spreading the misconception for the last few days that the Delhi government has increased the electricity prices. This is the problem of the Bharatiya Janata Party that the states in which their government is in power, the most expensive electricity is available. This is the problem of the Bharatiya Janata Party that wherever their government is in power, there is a power cut of eight hours in summer. BJP is not able to solve the electricity problem in its own states and is making false allegations against the Delhi government.

Atishi showed the DERC order and said that it is clearly stated that the PPAC charge will not be increased. The old PPAC order is valid till September. However, the discoms have a provision that if they have to buy extra power especially during the summer season, then they can increase the PPAC by 8 percent for a very short time. During that time when they buy electricity. This provision is not new. DERC has been following this provision for more than 10 years. But nowhere has the price of electricity been increased by the Delhi government or DERC.
