PPC chief Captain Amarinder Singh Saturday lashed out at Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal for spreading ‘lies’ that if Congress comes to power, farmers won’t get free electricity.

“Let me assure you, it is not matter of ‘if’, but ‘when’ we form the government, we will ensure free power to farmers”, he told Badal.

Amarinder said that during his tenure, farmers were not only provided free power, but full electricity for eight hours everyday. “In case there was a power cut , it was compensated the next day”, he said, adding, “Either you (Badal) seem to have lost your memory or deliberately trying to spread lies”.

The PCC president reiterated farmers will not only be provided free power, but he will ensure its regular supply. Besides, he added, there will be no hidden charges as imposed on farmers by the Badals. He said farmers were being made to pay huge a sum for superfluous reasons.
