Sukhbir Singh Badal – President, Akali Dal:
Akali Dal demands financial package for losses suffered by industrial sector due to ‘power lockdown’ in Punjab.
CM Capt Amarinder Singh is directly responsible for compulsory 3 day shutdown imposed on industry & closure of heavy industry for 5 days.
We demand Cong govt purchases power to provide required supply to industry. Power should be supplied as promised at Rs 5 per unit instead of current Rs 10 per unit.
Power bills for the current cycle should be deferred by 2 months.
Cong govt must hold special assembly session & tell Punjabis why it broke the back of industry which is recovering from COVID19 losses.
It should tell how PSPCL which was declared best utility in 2015 during Akali Dal tenure is failing to supply power to consumers.
