Delhi has been facing massive power outages for as long as five hours at a time in areas like Okhla, Lodhi Colony, Bhogal, Nizamuddin, Jangpura Extension, Masjid Moth, Malviya Nagaar, Kalkaji and parts of Lajpat Nagar and South Extension.

However, Kejriwal has said that his government will take strict action against the power companies if they fail to resolve the issues leading to power cuts.
