Bhopal: On the third day of the winter session of the Madhya Pradesh Legislative Assembly, there was a lot of uproar in the house regarding the electricity bill and fertilizer crisis. Both the issues were debated and the opposition, dissatisfied with the government’s response, walked out of the house. Former minister and Congress MLA from Bhopal PC Sharma raised the issue of increased electricity bills during the Corona period. PC Sharma showed a video in which the Chief Minister is seen saying that bills worth lakhs are coming, bill filled or stomach. People’s businesses were closed. From where will you pay the bill? PC Sharma alleged that the Chief Minister has turned his back on his words. There are dual policies. Connections are being cut. Targeting the power minister, demanded his resignation.

On this, Energy Minister Pradyuman Singh Tomar said that the government had not made any announcement of non-recovery of electricity bills during the Corona period, but the government had given exemption. He claimed that if any consumer has been billed more than the consumption of electricity, then it will be rectified. The MLA raised the issue of electricity bill during the time of Corona in the assembly to attract attention. He said that every section is troubled by the electricity bill. The minister’s reply on this is careless. The House is being misled. Congress boycotted the house. He demanded that the Chief Minister should come to the House and apologize. Along with the house, this voice will also rise on the road. Along with this, slogans of waiving electricity bill and Sarkar Nikki Hai were raised. He alleged that the government was sending the increased electricity bills to the consumers even during this crisis.

Similarly, Congress MLA Dr. Govind Singh raised the issue of food crisis in the state through calling attention. He said that farmers in the state were facing problems due to non-availability of fertilizers on time. Due to shortage of manure, farmers had to come on the road and use sticks of the police. On this, the Agriculture Minister categorically rejected the shortage of fertilizers. He claimed that there was no shortage of manure in the state. The government had provided 70% fertilizers to societies and 30% to private shopkeepers. After this, dissatisfied with the reply of the minister in the opposition, walked out of the house.
