Punjab govt must release white paper on electricity : Khaira

Punjab govt must release white paper on electricity : Khaira

Chandigarh, Apr 21 (UNI) The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) today demanded from the Punjab government to release a white paper on the present situation of electricity production and demand in the state. In a statement here, AAP MLA and chief whip in Assembly Sukhpal Singh Khaira said the government is unable to meet the electricity requirement in state but is talking about selling electricity to Pakistan and Nepal. He said Punjab is an agriculture based state and the paddy grower farmers need 24 hour uninterrupted supply of electricity but in the peak season farmers are provided only 8 hours of supply. Many small villages and remote areas (Dhanis) of state are still deprived of electricity facility. The AAP leader said that government itself is not clear about the power situation in state as the electricity minister has asked to review the power purchase agreements with private players in the state. He said that the clarity about it necessary before taking further steps to sell electricity. He termed government’s claim of power surplus mere an eyewash. “The ties of India-Pakistan are not in good shape and both countries are engaged in many differences so in this time selling electricity to Pakistan does not make sense.” he said. Mr Khaira said the government also must clarify the rates at which it is selling electricity to the residents. UNI DB SW 1745
