New Delhi, 02 November 2021

As per news report of The Indian Express, addressing media in national Capital, AAP co-incharge for Punjab, Raghav Chadha, cautioned people of Punjab against falling in the trap of the Congress government. “It’s a chunavi stunt (poll stunt) and a jumla (rhetoric) by Channi Sahab ahead of assembly elections in February-March next year. Decision to slash the power tariff has been taken with intent to fool people and secure their votes,” Chadha charged. He said the Punjab chief minister’s “poll stunt” will be over by the end of the current fiscal as the revised power tariff will remain effective only till March 31, 2022. “I want to caution people of Punjab that they should not fall in the trap of the ‘chunavi stunt’ and ‘chunavi jumla’ of Channi sahab. He is doing it because he wants to buy your votes,” Chadha said.
