GujaratThe Congress on December 28 alleged that the BJP government in Gujarat had let four private companies -- Adani, ESSAR, Tata and China Light Power -- to "squander" Rs 26,000 crore of the public exchequer by purchasing electricity from them at "unimaginably high rates" in a "huge power purchase scam" in the state.

"The BJP government's motto appears to be let four private electricity companies profiteer! Let people and exchequer suffer," Congress spokesperson Randeep Surjewala said in a statement issued here.



He said the "shocking revelations of profiteering" by the four private companies in Gujarat reek of a "huge scam in power purchase" that also "exposes the absolute falsehood and claims of power surplus state".

Surjewala said state-owned power plants had a capacity to generate 8,641 MW of electricity but still "they operate at an abysmally low level of 33 to 38 per cent of their capacities over the last three years".

The Gujarat government was only producing 3,283 MW power from the state-owned power plants, he said.
