Cong lesson from AAP; MP wants cut in power bill in Maha

Mumbai, Jan 1: Probably, this is the beginning of a much-awaited change in the centre. While AAP works toward public development in a fast-forward mode, veteran parties are taking a lesson or two from them.

After an order for cut in power bills in New Delhi, a Congress MP in Maharashtra has risen up to the cause in the state. MP Sanjay Nirupam is questioning his own paty for not taking any action toward the reduction of power tariff in the state, which has been skyrocketing for many years.

"Whenever I have been questioning the government's role in reducing prices, I have been told that it is the state electricity board that will decide and not the government. But, AAP did not have any issues in passing the order. There was no interference in passing the order, If it is possible in Delhi, then why is it not possible in other parts of the country," he said.

Denying any possibility of leaving the party or going against it, Nirupam said,"I am a Congress party worker and would remain the same. My demands are to uplift the image of the Congress party among the people. I want the party to do better and work more for the people of this country and I want this change by staying within the party," he further added.

"I would not hesitate to go on a dharna if my demands are not heard by the government. I have written a letter to the CM of Maharashtra and am awaiting answers," said he.
