Bathinda, January 21

The Election Commission (EC) has stopped the distribution of solar panels in the city.

DC-cum-DEO Vineet Kumar said: “We had received a complaint about the distribution of solar panels in the city, the nod for which was given before the poll code came into force. The EC found the practice inappropriate ahead of the polls and stopped. it”

A few days ago, SAD candidate Sarup Chand Singla had visited a dharamshala in ward number 46 and filed a complaint to the EC, alleging the wrong distribution of solar panels in the city.

However, Finance Minister Manpreet Badal had earlier alleged that Singla was creating hurdles to stop a scheme under which economically underprivileged households were to get solar panels. This scheme was approved much before the poll code came into force.—
