"Their government in 1998 was even unable to meet demand of 1900 MW whereas we are successfully meeting peak demand of over 6000 MW. The per capita power consumption in Delhi is 1450 units now which is highest in the country," the Chief Minister said.

On Sunday, BJP had said that power tariff will be one of the main issues during the upcoming assembly polls slated for November. The party had also promised to slash power tariff by 30 percent if voted to power.

The Chief Minister further claimed that the rates are much lower in Delhi compared to other metropolitan cities.

"People are unable to digest the politically motivated promise to bring down power tariff by 30 percent. There is no magic wand to effect such a huge reduction. The power tariff is much cheaper in Delhi compared to neighbouring towns and metropolitan cities," Dikshit added.

"The last 15 years have witnessed unprecedented pace of development in the city," she said.
