Rajsamand MP, Diya Kumari, has accused the Gehlot Government of backtracking on their announcement of deferment of electricity bills for 2 months.
Diya Kumari said this is playing with the sentiments of the people . The entire State has been under lockdown for the past one month due to Coronavirus. Work has stopped in factories and industries. The common people are facing difficulties in their daily lives. In such a situation, instead of waiving the bills, electricity bills are being generated by the Electricity Department with arbitrary amounts.
MP Diya Kumari said that on 3 April, a letter was sent to the State Government seeking a waiver of two months for electric and water bills. The Government announced deferment of the bills instead of waiving them. This commitment too has not been lived upto by the State Government.
The MP said that the people of Rajasthan have self respect , they do not need anything for free. It is due to this unforeseen calamity and circumstances that such appeals are being made. She urged again for the waiver of the bills for two months.
