He said that “financial mismanagement” under the BJP dispensation put burden on people of the state.
“The Raje government is exploiting people by levying new taxes. It has increased power and water tariff arbitrarily,” Pilot alleged.
Also, power distribution companies failed to check loss and theft in the last three years, he claimed.
The BJP government had set aside Rs 99,000 crore for the power sector. However, it spent only Rs 38,000 crore for the development of public power sector, the Congress leader said.
