No need for cuts: Now, Sidhu advises CM on power woes | India News – Times of India

CHANDIGARH/AMRITSAR: Congress’ Navjot Singh Sidhu took to Twitter on Friday to suggest ways to Punjab CM Capt Amarinder Singh to tackle the ongoing power crisis in the state. He said there would be no need for power cuts or for the CM to change office timings if “we act in the right direction”.

Sidhu’s thread of nine tweets comes at a time when opposition parties are gunning for the Congress government over long power outages in the state on Wednesday and Thursday. His suggestions came even as he himself has a pending electricity bill of Rs 8.6 lakh to pay to the Punjab State Power Corporation Ltd for his residence in Amritsar. According to PSPCL’s website, the cash and cheque payment due date is July 2.

Meanwhile, Sidhu, who has stopped criticising Amarinder after he met a Congress panel last month, tweeted on Friday morning about the “truth of power costs, cuts, power purchase agreements and how to give free and 24-hour power to the people of Punjab.”

While Sidhu gave the CM more advice on power costs, BSP functionary Gurbax Singh Shergill, a former SDO of PSPCL, said Sidhu should have cleared his electricity bill as a priority before offering advice on how to resolve the electricity crisis.
