SAD protests for cheap power


SAD protests for cheap power

Tribune News Service

Moga, July 12

Leading the protest against the state government over high power tariffs and poor governance, SAD chief Sukhbir Singh Badal slammed Capt Amarinder Singh, saying he was the worst Chief Minister the state had ever witnessed post-Independence.

He said there was no governance in the state. The Congress leaders were using the official machinery to settle scores with Akali workers by registering false cases against them. He also alleged that the Congress MLAs were hand in glove with the drug and liquor mafia and police officers were helping them at local levels.

The SAD president also raised the issue of political vendetta against Akali workers and informed them that the party had formed a committee, headed by Rajya Sabha member Balwinder Singh Bhundur, which looks into the false cases registered against Akali workers.

Speaking on the power issue, Sukhbir said the Congress government had increased the tariff by 25 to 30 per cent during the last two and half years. “We demand the increase in power rates be reviewed and reduced immediately,” he added.
