BY TC News Desk

Agartala July 21: Alleging the central government led by PM Modi of burdening the common people with excessive electricity charges, the All India Electricity Consumers Association (AIECA) staged protest against the coal policy of Indian Govt which is allegedly forcing the power companies to purchase coals at an expensive price from outside.

Talking on this issue, AIECA Convenor Sanjoy Choudhury said, “Instead of Coal productions the Govt of India is forcing the power companies to purchase coals at high expense that has added to heavy electricity bills. Only Adani groups will be benefitted from that. We also oppose the new amendment on Electricity-2021”.The AIECA protested against the low voltage and power cut problems in Tripura and demanded power connections to all households.
