    BJP leaders,Chaturvedi fiercely demand cancellation of agreement with SNDL.Mulak,Moghe keep silent

    Most surprisingly, the Guardian Minister of Nagpur District Shivajirao Moghe and the Minister of State for Energy Rajendra Mulak, who a few days ago “roared like tigers and warned” Spanco to improve its state of affairs and not to harass the power consumers or face stringent action, were found seating like toothless and clawless “tigers” with unhearable “roar.” Both the leaders only uttered loudly “yes, yes” and supported Ajit Pawar who had refused to cancel agreement with the Spanco, according to a BJP leader who was also present at the meeting.

    Nagpur News: The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) vociferously demanded cancellation of the agreement with the Spanco Nagpur Discom Limited (SNDL) franchisee immediately as the company has created a hell of a situation for Nagpur consumers.

    The BJP leaders including MLA Vikas Kumbhare attended the meeting convened in Mumbai by Maharashtra Government subsequent to hundreds of complaints of Nagpur consumers like flawed power meters, bills of exorbitant amounts due to fast-swinging meters, irregular power supply, load-shedding for hours together, and most horribly no action on their complaints by the Spanco officials. The only response of Spanco officials to complainant consumers is: “First pay the bills then the complaints would be looked into.” (Similar to a Queen in the Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland who always ordered: “First cut off the head, then arguments”).

    The BJP leaders informed the meeting, chaired by the Maharashtra Energy Minister and Deputy Chief Minister Ajit Pawar, that the party would not any more tolerate Spanco’s “devilish state of the affairs” and torture of Nagpur power consumers at the “shocking hands” of the private franchisee Spanco. Kumbhare demanded immediate cancellation of the agreement with Spanco and save the consumers from hellish situation.

    However, the Energy Minister Ajit Pawar did not accept the BJP demand saying, “the agreement will not be cancelled. But the Spanco would be directed to improve its services and provide a relief to the power consumers in Nagpur.”

    Most surprisingly, the Guardian Minister of Nagpur District Shivajirao Moghe and the Minister of State for Energy Rajendra Mulak, who a few days ago “roared like tigers and warned” Spanco to improve its state of affairs and not to harass the power consumers or face stringent action, were found seating like toothless and clawless “tigers” with unhearable “roar.” Both the leaders only uttered loudly “yes, yes” and supported Ajit Pawar who had refused to cancel agreement with the Spanco, according to a BJP leader who was also present at the meeting.

    The BJP MLA Vikas Kumbhare informed the meeting that during MSEDCL regime there were hardly any complaints from consumers. Everything was running in a smooth and regular manner. But since Spanco was given the contract the situation has turned like a “Narak” (Hell) for consumers. He also warned that an intense agitation would be launched if the agreement is not cancelled.

    However, the Chief of Hanuman Sena Satish Chaturvedi supported the demand of BJP for cancellation of the agreement with Spanco.

    The Spanco supplies electricity to Civil Lines, Mahal, and Gandhibagh Zones which consist 4.5 lakh consumers.

    The meeting was attended among others by higher officials of MSEDCL, SNDL, representatives of consumers forums, MLA Dinanath Padole, NCP and Congress leaders and other political party leaders.
