Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) on Sunday alleged that the private power distribution companies were trying to scuttle the audit of their accounts by the CAG and warned that the party would protest any further rise in electricity tariff in the national Capital.

The AAP also demanded that the Centre should direct the authorities concerned to warn the discoms that their “attempts to scuttle the CAG audit will result in cancellation of their licences.”

“The AAP will lead an unprecedented protest in the national Capital in case DERC (Delhi Electricity Regulatory Commission) goes ahead with its plan to raise the electricity tariffs without waiting for the findings of the CAG audit,” the party said in a statement.

Referring to a letter written by the Comptroller and Auditor General (CAG) to the Lieutenant Governor of Delhi, the AAP claimed, “It is extremely shocking that top CAG officials have been forced to remind the LG and the Delhi administration run by him about their duty to ensure that it is mandatory for discoms to provide all their account books to the auditors.”

It further alleged that discoms have hatched a conspiracy with “active help from BJP and Congress to delay the audit and frustrate the CAG.”

“The manner in which the discoms are hiding their account books and other related data with active connivance from top Delhi administration, is a clear and incriminating evidence about the attempts being made to force the CAG to drop this important audit,” it claimed.

    And AAP is saying bakwas again. Discoms have no power to stop CAG audit. Only government can do that. Power Minister Piyush Goyal has already said he supports the audit.
