Indore : Large number of Congress members led by MLA Jeetu Patwari and former MLA Tulsi Silawat staged a demonstration at Electricity Board’s office on Monday to protest against rise in power tariff. The Congress leaders alleged that farmers were facing trouble due to lack of rains and increasing rates of fertilizers and by increasing rates of temporary connection, the State Government made their condition worse.
The Congress members staged the dharna with lanterns and shouted slogans against the BJP-led State Government and the electricity board during the protest. Heavy police force was also deployed by the administration to avoid any untoward incident. The demonstration was ended when the Board officials received memorandum from the agitating Congress leaders.
