Abolish Octroi on Urban Petrol And Urban Electricity in Punjab

In Punjab Petrol ( Common Man`s fuel as it used in scooters , motor cycles , mopeds small cars like Maruti 800 , Nano etc ) retails around Rs. 74 a Liter in Jalandhar and rest of Punjab( Highest in the Country ).

Even after abolishing Octroi ( Choongi ) in the State , Choongi continues to be levied on Urban Petrol and Urban Electricity .

. Whereas Electricity is given free to many in Punjab ( on Vote Bank basis with no concession to Physically Handicapped Punjabis as they do not form  a Vote Bank ) on the other hand ,Urban businessmen in Punjab are charged Electricity at Penal Rates ( euphemistically called Commercial Rates ).

The Govt. should honour its Pre Poll Promises
