Sanjay Nirupam seeks reduction in power tariff for Mumbai
Mumbai: A 15-member delegation of the Mumbai Congress, led by president Sanjay Nirupam, met Governor Ch Vidyasagar Rao seeking lowering of power tariffs in the metropolis.
Nirupam said the delegation comprising senior leaders and office-bearers discussed the issue of indiscriminate increase in power tariff in the city.
He demanded a CAG audit of all the power discoms and said the Maharashtra Electricity Regulatory Commission (MERC) and discoms link should be probed. MERC takes decisions on power tariffs.
Nirupam said the tariffs should be reduced to provide relief to people. The Congress leader said the Governor assured him that he would call a meeting of Energy Department officials and take up necessary steps.
