Chandigarh, August 14

Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) president Sukhbir Singh Badal today warned Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh against the withdrawal of free power facility to farmers, introduced in 1997 by the Parkash Singh Badal-led SAD-BJP government.

“If you take a single step towards discontinuing free power to farmers, you must prepare yourself and your government to face an unprecedented mass movement by the SAD for safeguarding the interests of the already beleaguered peasantry. We will never allow free power to be stopped,” Sukhbir said.

Meanwhile, the party also slammed the government for deciding to abolish 40,000 posts in the Punjab State Power Corporation Limited. — TNS
