New Delhi: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal will launch a settlement scheme for electricity bill disputes on Sunday, the city government said on Friday.

According to a government statement, the settlement scheme for electricity bill disputes will be named as “Bijli Bil Vivad Samadhan Scheme” and will be launched by the chief minister at an event in east Delhi. All criminal/civil proceedings, if any, related to these cases, will be withdrawn. The settlement scheme would continue for a month.

Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia and Power Minister Satyendar Jain would be present during the launch of the one-time settlement scheme, which aims to provide relief to the poor and medium income group consumers of the city.

“Consumers residing in JJ clusters who could not pay their dues in the past will be charged at Rs.250 per month only for the period for which they have not paid the dues. A  late payment surcharge will be fully waived off. The dues can be paid in six monthly installments,” the statement said.

“To give relief to the small and medium consumers of domestic category with load up to 11 kW and are booked for direct theft, entire late payment surcharge and two-third of the balance outstanding amount of the bill will be waived if they pay the total amount in one go,” it said, adding “If the consumer agrees to clear the outstanding in four monthly installments, 60 percent of the outstanding balance will be waived off.”

  • Arvind Kejriwal apologised to Bikram Singh Majithia
  • BJP leader says that this apology established himself
  • BJP also alleged that Kejriwal did nothing while state aced so many problems

A day after Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal apologised to former Punjab Minister Bikram Singh Majithia for alleging that he was involved in the drug trade, the BJP Delhi unit on Friday said he has exposed himself as a “liar”.

The BJP also alleged that he was doing nothing even while the people of the national capital were facing a number of issues due to sealing.

Addressing a press conference here, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Delhi unit President Manoj Tiwari said: ” What we have been saying for long has been proved today. He is a liar. He has apologised to Majithia for making false allegations against him.”

“He is on his way to apologise to (Union Finance Minister) Arun Jaitley ji and (Union Transport Minister) Nitin Gadkari ji for making false allegations,” the BJP leader said. Kejriwal is facing defamation cases in court for levelling allegations against Jaitley and Gadkari.

The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) chief on Thursday apologised to the Shiromani Akali Dal leader in Punjab for making allegations of involvement in the drug trade, following which the latter said that he will withdraw a defamation suit filed in an Amristar court.

Tiwari, who represents the northeast Delhi constituency in the Lok Sabha, accused Kejriwal of misleading the people over the ongoing sealing drive in the national capital.

BJP MLA Vijender Gupta accused the AAP chief of only rendering “lip service” on the sealing drive and urged the Chief Minister to hold an all-party meeting with the Supreme Court-appointed Monitoring committee overseeing the drive.

“Since December last, Kejriwal is only doing lip service on the issue of sealing drive. He has done nothing to stop it,” Gupta, the Leader of Opposition in the Delhi Assembly, said.

He said that though Lt Governor Anil Baijal cleared the file for notifying 351 roads in the capital on February 8, the matter is still pending. “Why hasn’t he (Kejriwal) notified the 351 roads in the last 45 days?” Gupta asked.

BJP leaders are calling this apology a gimmick.

He also accused Kejriwal of hatching a conspiracy to mislead people by playing the emotional card of apology. Gupta warned the Monitoring Committee members not to act outside the law and said: “If the monitoring committee acts against law, then the BJP will oppose it.”

“We are going to inform the three municipal corporations of Delhi not to follow the commands of the Monitoring Committee if it goes against the law,” he said. “The MCDs should approach the court and also make Kejriwal a party,” the BJP leader added. IANS
