Fazilka, August 2

The police have booked around 65 Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) activists today for violating health guidelines while protesting against high power tariff in Arniwala.

On Saturday, AAP halqa incharge Mohinder Singh Kachura along with his supporters protested against snapping of power connections of labourers who were unable to pay inflated power bills.

The AAP’ workers had blocked Fazilka-Malout road and sat on a dharna at the Punjab State Power Corporation Limited (PSPCL) office for five hours.

Besides Kachura, Kewal Krishan and Sukhwinder Arora, along with 60 unidentified persons have been booked under Section 283, 341, 188, 147 and 149 of the IPC and 51(B) of the Disaster Management Act.

Kachura said the state government cannot gag voice of people by registering cases. He alleged that hundreds of power connections were disconnected by the PSPCL as the needy were not able to pay their bills. He said power tariff in Punjab was four times higher as compared to Delhi.
