Kejriwal accuses Tata, Ambani and Sheila of discriminating with electricity labourers
New Delhi, Nov. 10 (ANI): Anti-graft activist turned politician Arvind Kejriwal on Saturday alleged that corporate houses like Tata, Ambani along with Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit are discriminating against labourers working in electricity distributing companies in Delhi.
Kejriwal blamed that a strong nexus between these companies and Dikshit is in force and that's why the Chief Minister is not taking any action against operators like Tata and Ambani.
Since 2002, Anil Ambani owned Reliance Power's Yamuna Power Limited (BYPL), Rajdhani Power Limited (BRPL) and Tata's North Delhi Power Limited (NDPL) are the main electricity distributing companies operating in capital with Delhi Vidyut Board.
"Workers have told that they were being forced to sign on blank papers. They get merely Rs 3000 to 5000 instead of Rs 9000, the minimum wage in Delhi. They have never given been bonus as per the rule," said Kejriwal.
"Where is the remaining Rs 4000 going. This is the money Ambani is depositing in Swiss banks, what I have said yesterday," added Kejriwal.
Taking on Delhi's CM, Kejriwal said that Dikshit will have to answer, what she will do for this weakest section of the society and for the common man of Delhi.
Earlier Kejriwal had alleged Dikshit to increase electricity fare by 23 percent instead of Delhi Electricity Regulatory Authority (DERC) order to reduce it in 2010, due to the pressure from these companies.
Asked to comment on Union External Affairs Minister Salman Khurshi's terming him as 'a mosquito', Kejriwal said: " I am a dengue mosquito for Congress and BJP, if I will bite they will never get well." (ANI)
