Power demand in Delhi rises to 8000 MW : Kejriwal

New Delhi, May 22 (UNI) Amidst intense heat, the power demand in Delhi on Wednesday touched the unprecedented mark of 8000 MW which the city government was able to provide without any power cuts, according to Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal.

Highlighting his government’s effective management of this peak power demand without resorting to power cuts, Kejriwal in a social media post on X alleged the BJP of neglecting power supply issues in the states under its rule.

“This is a great achievement for the people of Delhi, because till 2014, there used to be long power cuts even at the peak demand of 5925 MW in summers,” he said in a post.

“On the other hand, there are BJP-ruled states like UP, Haryana, Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh, where there have been power cuts of 10-12 hours in the last 2-3 days,” the CM claimed.

This is the reason why the BJP wants to destroy the Aam Aadmi Party. Because our work shows the truth of their failure to the entire country,” Kejriwal added.
