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.—
