Demostrations in Jalandhar Against Massive Urban Power Cuts to Paid Consumers

People of various localities in Jalandhar have taken to streets to protest against the massive electricity cuts which have been imposed on paid urban consumers . Electricity supply has been diverted to free agriculturist consumers.

Punjab seems to be getting a new division Paid Electricity Consumers and Free Consumers. Paid consumers feel that they are paying through their noses for the electricity they consume and , hence , they have aright to get value for their hard earned money.

Many have proposed the bifurcation of Electricity Board in to two . One for Paid Consumers and Second for Free Consumers. Some feel that Govt. should treat every body equally and supply electricity free of cost to all segments of society. Why should Govt differentiate , they argue.
