No question of withdrawal of free power to farmers: Amarinder

Chandigarh, Aug 14 (UNI) Punjab Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh on Friday made it clear that there was no question of withdrawing free power to farmers in the state, and the same will continue as long as he is leading the government.
He said that though the report of the Montek Singh Ahluwalia led experts group was only a preliminary one, his government would not consider any recommendation on withdrawal of free power by any expert. “As long as I am here, free power to tubewells will continue,” he said, reacting to media reports.
Montek himself clarified during a Video Conference interaction with the Chief Minister that the report of the expert group was not anti-farmer.
