With long outages threatening to become a major political issue ahead of assembly polls, a worried Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit has written to the chairman of Reliance Infrastructure which runs two power distribution companies.

In her letter, she has asked him to take steps to “rectify” the problem and ensure round-the-clock electricity supply. She said that the power supply by BSES Yamuna Power Ltd (BYPL) and BSES Rajdhani Power Ltd (BRPL) has “worsened” in the city contrary to expectation of improvement and asked him to take remedial measures. Dikshit said she was “shocked” to know that the discoms run by Reliance Infrastructure owed dues to the tune of Rs 3,337 crore to two of the Government-run power generation and transmission companies.
