New Delhi, India, November 30: Ajay Maken, the Congress leader and former Delhi Power Minister, and other former Power Ministers of Delhi during Sheila Dixit's tenure met in Delhi on Tuesday and requested a CBI probe into the Aam Aadmi Party's alleged power electricity subsidy scheme.Former Delhi Power Ministers referred to a alleged swindle of over Rs 5,000 crore in a two-page study to Delhi LG VK Saxena.Manish Sisodia, the Delhi Finance Minister, said in his 2021-22 budget speech on March 9, 2021, that 90% of domestic customers in Delhi are getting free electricity and that he gave the private companies Rs 14,731 crore as subsidies.Since the Voluntary Subsidy Scheme (VSS) was introduced, only 60% of consumers were eligible for it.In his 2021-22 budget speech, Delhi's secretary general declared that 90% of domestic customers in Delhi are getting free electricity.Nevertheless, only about 60% of domestic consumers have registered under the VSS (Voluntary Subsidy Scheme).This means that at least one-third of the total consumers whose names were given unchecked and unaudited don't exist anymore.According to the letter, it is a fraud worth Rs 5000 crores. According to excerpts from a press conference in August 2019, we asked for a DBT on power subsidies, according to the letter.Former Delhi Power Minister Ajay Maken referred to Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwals' electricity model earlier this month and referred to it as the corruption model.Maken said that Delhi's electricity rate is the highest in the nation and was referred to as the corruption model in a booklet included in the affidavit.The commercial rate is Rs 16.09 per unit, while the industrial rate is Rs 13 per unit. According to Maken, the manufacturing industry in Delhi grew at a rate of 12% during Congress rule, but it has fallen to just 1% in the last six years, i.e.74 percent.Due to the Sheila Dixit government's privatization, Delhi has the least electricity theft.According to him, the electricity theft rate increased to 45.3 percent in 2002, while it is now just 8.9 percent. It is being distributed directly to private companies rather than providing Rs 14,731 crore as a power subsidy to consumers.The Aam Aadmi Party had stated in its manifesto earlier that the grant would be offered to government rather than private organizations.Consumers can get up to 500 units of free electricity for as much as $500 in this amount.If the Congress government comes, they will do it, he said.Like Aam Aadmi Party treasurer and MP ND Guptas son Naveen Gupta is the president of the electricity company, Kejriwal said. According to the claim, only 37 lakh people, i.e.66% of respondents, have been accepted in the Delhi Governments Voluntary Scheme.Maken demanded that this 30% fake customer money be given to a private company, arguing that unemployment has increased in Delhi as a result of expensive electricity in Kejriwals' electricity scheme, and that corruption of crores has occurred in the name of 30 percent fake consumers, according to Maken.Maken said that it is a power, unemployment, and corruption model based on Kejriwals' BBB policy. In addition, the Congress will use this booklet extensively in the MCD and Gujarat elections.
