Cong govt should stop discrimination in giving power subsidy to industries : Cheema

Chandigarh, Jul 21 (UNI) Criticising the Punjab Congress government for ''discriminating'' against small and medium enterprises and business entities in the state and giving huge power subsidy to a few crony industries, senior Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Harpal Singh Cheema said that the Congress government should stop the discrimination in giving power subsidy and other concessions to the industrialists and traders.
The AAP leader demanded that the Punjab government should formulate a transparent, balanced and streamlined policy to provide more subsidies to the industries including electricity to save the industry and business world which was facing severe financial crisis due to deadly policies and Covid pandemic.
In a statement here on Wednesday, the Leader of Opposition (LoP) in Punjab Assembly alleged that the Captain government had discriminated against the industries of the state in providing power supply and power subsidy. ''The Captain government is looting the state's treasury on a few of his favorite industrialists. The biggest hit in Punjab is small and medium enterprises,'' he added.
