The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) has demanded that the Captain Amarinder Singh-led government should immediately scrap the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) inked by the erstwhile SAD-BJP government and the private companies  and bail out the people subjected to paying high power rates.Addressing media persons in the press gallery in the presence of leadership of (LoP) in Punjab Vidhan Sabha, Harpal Singh Cheema, senior party leaders Sunam MLA.  Aman Arora, accused the Badals of entering in agreement with three private companies costing the public exchequer 70 thousand crores of rupees annually.He further said that even as the state had its own resources and infrastructure to generate enough power, people of the state had to pay the highest power tariff compared to some other states of the country. Comparing the power tariff with Delhi, Arora said that the Kejriwal Government had been providing electricity to the people in Delhi at cheaper rates, at  Re 1 per unit.On the other hand, Arora said, that the government was not providing power to the poor and ‘dalit’ covered under the free power, which, Arora said, was the outcome of the agreements inked with the private players. He accused the then government of spending to the tune of 737 crore in the name of the revival of the thermal plants at Bathinda but in vain.      

Showing copies of the purchase agreements to scribes, Arora said that the provisions of the agreements were broadly anti-people and anti-Punjab, to say the least, which said that even if the private thermal plants did not generate a single unit, the government had to pay the whopping amount running into crore to them under the agreement.Issuing a joint statement, Cheema and Arora accused the Badals of colluding with private companies spinning crores of rupees. They further informed that Captain Amarinder Singh, Punjab unit president Sunil Jakhar and other big wigs of the party used to make tall promises on scrapping the agreement deals before the elections, but no one was coming forth to talk about it even two years after assuming power. Among others who were present of the occasion included principal Budh Ram, Bibi Sarabjit Kaur Manuke, Kultar Singh Sandhwan, Jai Kishan Rori, Manjit Singh Bilaspur, Amarjit Sandoa, Meet Hayer,  Rupinder Kaur Ruby (All MLAs) and party spokesman Neel Garg and media media in charge Manjit Singh Sidhu
