Chandigarh, October 12

Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) senior leader Prem Singh Chandumajra today alleged the non-serious approach and administrative lapse of the state government was responsible for the present power crisis.

He stressed by not raising the issue of the power crisis during his meeting with the Prime Minister, Chief Minister Charanjit Singh Channi indicated the non-seriousness of his Government.

Chandumajra said the Congress party and its government were embroiled in infighting for the top chair and they cared least about the power crisis. He said now the CM was writing letters to the PM after failing to take up the issue with him during his one-to-one meeting.

The SAD leader also said Punjab was facing the coal crisis because Punjab State Power Corporation Limited (PSPCL) is defaulter of Coal India Limited. He said the rules were clear on the supply of coal; those who paid in advance got priority, second slot was for those who mad immediate payment on delivery and third was for defaulters. He said Punjab was a defaulter state, so it was not getting priority. — TNS
