BJP, AAP spar over electricity tariff in Delhi
NEW DELHI: Delhi BJP and AAP on Tuesday attacked each other over the allegations of electricity price. "More than 2 crore people of Delhi are suffering due to a heat wave in Delhi and the temperature is increasing day by day. Delhi government used to frame Summer Action Plan in the month of February itself but we don't see any Summer Action Plan on the ground due to which the problem of the water supply has become very grave," said Delhi BJP chief Manoj Tiwari.
He also said that there is only one Department under the Chief Minister and i.e. the Delhi Jal Board. After Kejriwal took charge of the DJB, the Department is incurring heavy loss. When the local people of Malviya Nagar gheraoed Kejriwal and MLA Somnath then he promised that he will solve the problem within two to three days but the problem has not been solved yet.
Meanwhile, AAP leader Raghav Chadha slammed Tiwari saying, "Several governments allowed inflated electricity tariffs to be collected in Delhi in collusion with power companies until the AAP formed the government here. When people of Delhi elected Arvind Kejriwal as their Chief Minister, he ensured that people of Delhi receive the cheapest electricity in the country. "
