No relief For Jalandhar Urban Electricity Consumers

No relief has been given to the Urban Paid Consumers of electricity in Jalandhar and else where in Punjab. All promises of refunds , roll backs and abolition of octroi  " CHUNGI " on urban paid consumers have not been kept.

It is blatant vote bank politics where rural land lords ( many of them Multi Crorepatis ) are being given  FREE ELECTRICITY which is being paid ( cross subsidy ) by Paid Urban Consumers ( Some of them humble Landless Shopkeepers ).

Urban Punjabis have been ditched by all political parties,. This discriminatory electricity "JAZIA " is going to be a major issue in forthcoming Assembly elections in Punjab . Fed up with the open exploitation  urban paid consumers are planning to field their independent candidates and launch a " BIJLI SATYAGARHA " on Gandhian lines to seek justice .

Free Electricity Versus Exorbitant Electricity  Charges is , also , against the Fundamental Right To Equality enshrined in The Constitution of India ..
