New Delhi: The Delhi government may be all set to order an audit by the Comptroller and Auditor General into the finances of the capital’s three private power distribution companies, an issue on which the ruling AAP had led street protests in the past.
Defying doctor’s advice, an unwell Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal met CAG Shashi Kant Sharma to discuss the issue before going into a cabinet meeting.
Kejriwal said the Delhi government is of the view that audit of these companies can be done. But under the provisions of law the three companies were being given the opportunity of being heard on the government audit of their finances.
“They are being given time till tomorrow morning by which they will have to give their representations. The cabinet will meet in the evening,” he told reporters before leaving for his meeting with the CAG.
At the cabinet meeting today, the issue of revising the power tariff may be discussed.
He said in today’s cabinet meeting, they would discuss issues relating to unauthorised colonies.
