The Punjab unit of the Aam Aadmi party (AAP) on Wednesday raised questions over Chief Minister Charanjit Singh Channi’s announcement to set the monthly fee for a cable TV connection at Rs 100, saying the government should immediately issue a notification if it thinks it can fix them. these rates.
AAP’s top leader and spokesperson Malvinder Singh Kang said the huge support his party is garnering from the public ahead of next year’s Punjab assembly elections has “pissed off” the government. Congress in power.
As a result, the chief minister made announcements without any thought, “but in reality nothing is being done on the ground,” Kang said.
“This is why Chief Minister Channi has been ridiculed by the people as a fake Kejriwal,” he said.
Regarding the announcement of the monthly fee of 100 rupees, Kang said, “Let the chief minister say how it will be possible? When will the notification be issued? Prior to announcing the decision, did Charanjit Singh Channi conduct any study or research on the rules and regulations of the State and the Telecommunications Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) for the operations of wired network? If Chief Minister Channi had given even a little thought to these aspects and facts, he would not have made the ‘farman tughlaqi’ (diktat) by announcing 100 rupees per cable connection because the tariffs cable network are set by TRAI, ” he mentioned.
Kang challenged the Channi government to issue an immediate notification of around Rs 100 per month for the cable connection.
“If the government does not do this, the AAP will take care of the residence of the chief minister in the coming days,” he said.
The Punjab Cable Operators Association also raised questions over the chief minister’s announcement, saying it is TRAI that regulates the cable TV industry.
Addressing a rally in Ludhiana on Monday, Channi had announced to set the monthly fee for a connection to cable television at Rs 100.
Now people do not need to pay more than Rs 100 per month and strict measures will be taken against those who do not adhere to the new tariffs, he said.
“If anyone is harassing you, let me know,” Channi said at the rally.
