BJP WILL STAGE DHARNA-DEMONSTRATION AT 25 PROMINENT PLACES OF DELHI TO PROTEST AGAINST STEEP POWER TARIFF HIKE
To protest against steep power tariff hike BJP will stage Dharna/Demonstration at 25 prominent places of Delhi and demand withdrawal of the increased tariff. Pradesh President Shri Vijender Gupta and Prof. Vijay Kumar Malhotra shall lead the workers at DERC office Malviya Nagar. Shri Gupta told that even after steep power tariff hike, the Government is adding insult to injury of the people. Chief Minister Shiela Dikshit has stated that now power tariff will be increased every third month. Her statement is inhuman and provoking to the agitated people of Delhi and the BJP strongly condemns it. He told that power companies are earning profit of crores. It can be confirmed by CAG audit but the Government is not ready for such audit of the companies because this will expose them.

It may be mentioned that the DERC has imposed additional burden of about 75 percent on the people of Delhi although the power companies are earning heavy profit. On 26th June the Chairman of the DERC made announcement to this effect. After this there is great acrimony among the people and the BJP workers. This anti people steep hike in power tariff has made the life of the people difficult. People think that Delhi Government is planning to drive out the common man from Delhi by making steep hike in the rates of power and water.
