The Congress on Tuesday accused the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) of mismanagement in the power sector, which has led to growing unemployment in the city, and demanded a Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) probe in the matter.

Senior Congress leader Ajay Maken, releasing a booklet criticising the Delhi government’s electricity model, said, “Ever since AAP came to power in 2015, the number of factories in 11 critical employment-generating factories has seen a 37% reduction totalling 2,638 units, resulting in the unemployment of around 40% workers in these families.”

Maken also alleged that the government has provided 14,731 crore in power subsidies to private discoms in an unaudited manner.

A spokesperson of the AAP declined to comment.
