Demand For District Status For Phagwara Also

Punjab Assembly Poll eve announcements are on . Pathankot and Fazilka have been made districts.

There is demand for making Phagwara a District too. Phagwara residents  have to travel across Jalandhar district to reach their district Head Quarter Kapurthala.

Petrol and Electricity reforms are the two most important issues for Urban Punjabis

Urban Punjabis Want


Immediate abolition of " Commercial category " connection category . This they find both exploitative as well as humiliating. Even Urban business men have a right to earn their livelihoods.

End of cross subsidies

End Electricity Tax and Octroi ( Choongi ) on Electricity


The price of petrol should be reduced to the price prevailing in the neighboring state of Haryana ( where it is nearly Rs. 7 cheaper per litre ) . Petrol in both states is sourced from same set of refineries.

Exemption of small cars ( like Maruti 800 and Nano ) from Toll Taxes on Toll Plazas.
