BJP will stage Dharna-Demonstration in 10 various areas of Delhi tomorrow to protest against 22 percent hike in power tariff in Delhi
BJP Delhi Pradesh will stage Dharna-Demonstration in 10 various areas of Delhi tomorrow to protest against the anti people decision of Delhi Government to hike power tariff by about 22 percent in Delhi. Announcing the movement, Pradesh President told that this demonstration will be staged in 10 areas of Delhi including Narela, Badli, Patparganj, Seemapuri, Ambedkar Nagar, Chhatarpur, Mehrauli, Kondali etc.
Shri Gupta told that even after allowing subsidy up to 200 units, these houses will have to pay 67 percent more on each unit. Today every citizen of Delhi has to pay BRPL & NDPL 30,000 rupees per head so that the loss of 6000 crores as shown by Delhi Government is made up because the present increase will wipe out only 1200 crores deficit.
He further told that in the next year 3700 crore rupees will be added in the deficit. As a result of this power tariff will continue to increase continuously for 4 to 5 years and the people will continue to suffer. Not only this, the prices of Mother Dairy products, fruits and vegetables and metro rail fare besides expenditure on street lights will increase. This is loot of the common man. It is surprising that even today the people living in NDMC areas have to pay 30 percent less on the power bill. Why such injustice with the people living in rest of areas of Delhi?
