Bathinda, April 10

As part of its campaign against the hike in electricity tariff, the AAP has announced public meetings and door-to-door activities in the coming days to raise awareness among people and exhort them to raise voice against the move.

Stating this here today, Navdeep Jeeda, AAP’s Bathinda urban president, said: “We will hold 16,000 public meetings and stage protests by burning copies of electricity bills across the state. If voted to power, the AAP will provide relief from high tariff bills.”

He said a large part of people’s income was going towards paying hiked power bills and the decision should be reversed by the state government.
