Posted on Jan 08, 12:13PM | UNI

Bharatiya Janata Party will launch agitation shortly over the proposed power tariff hike by the Andhra Pradesh government.

Addressing a press conference here, BJP senior leader M Venkaiah Naidu said under pressure from the Central government, the state government had proposed to increase the power tariff likely from April this year.

'The Congress government was ruling since 2004 and the government should announce what steps have been taken in increasing power production,' he demanded.

'Lack of transparency and inefficiency of the government only is leading to hike the power tariff which will be a 'back-breaking' burden for the common man,' he added.
