New Delhi: Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit on Friday took a jibe at Aam Admi Party (AAP) chief Arvind Kejriwal for his agitation against 'inflated' power bills, by saying that people who use air-conditioners would have to pay high tariff.

"In the last few years, the sale of generators has declined in Delhi and the sale of ACs (air-conditioners) has risen sharply. If you use an AC, you will have to pay its electricity bill. But Kejriwal does not talk about that," Diskhit said.

"His (Kejriwal) power was cut as he did not pay his bill," the Chief Minister said.

Kejriwal had on Thursday accused the Uttar Pradesh Power Corporation Ltd. (UPPCL) of disconnecting the electricity connection of his house in Kaushambi in Ghaziabad district, for non-payment of his electricity bill. The power utility denied the allegation, saying that it neither cut Kejriwal's power connection nor restored it.
