Capt Amarinder has practically reneged on free power facility extended to farmers by ex CM Parkash Singh Badal by not providing 8-hr uninterrupted supply during peak of paddy season. That too after betraying them over farm loan waiver. Punjab will NEVER trust his word again.
This power cut DRAMA is to avoid paying subsidy to PSPCL for free power given to farmers.
Many farmers are being forced to plough their paddy fields, thousands haven’t completed sowing of paddy due to lack of power & others are paying high prices for diesel.
Akali Dal demands Rs 50/Q bonus to farmers for extra costs incurred for paddy crop.
Shame that govt is also punishing industrial sector by imposing 2-day off!
We will hold protests outside PSPCL offices tomorrow for restoration of power supply for agri & domestic sector.
