Maharashtra: Bandh from November 28 over inflated bills in Kolhapur district

Residents of villages in Kolhapur district are going to observe a bandh from November 28 to protest against the inflated electricity bills and to demand the waiver of power bills issued during the lockdown.

The decision to observe bandh in the city will be taken after a meeting of the city-level forum of activists.

Pratap Hogade, convenor of the district forum demanding waiver, said, “The state government is taking a U-turn on the power bill waiver issue. Our demand is that the power bills of six months be waived. We want waiver for consumers using up to 300 units.”

“The villages will observe bandh in a rotating manner. We expect similar protests to be held in other districts too,” he said.
