    The Chief Minister of Maharastra Prithviraj Chavan
    has said the state government will compensate the
    state electricity board (SEBs) for lower tariffs by
    cutting its plan expenditure. The government will pay the SEBs Rs 7200 crore
    and there are plans to make power cheaper for
    Mumbai too, the CM added in an interview to CNBC-
    TV18. The Maharashtra government today announced a
    20 percent cut in power tariff for the industrial and
    agriculture classes of consumers. The state cabinet
    accepted the recommendations of a high-powered
    committee led by Narayan Rane, which suggested a
    20 percent power subsidy for users for a 10-month period till the state elections in October.

    Will compensate SEBs; cheaper power for Mumbai likely: CM - CNBC-TV18

    Nobody criticizing NCP or Congress here ?

    Will BJP and SS continue with subsidy ? Why is BJP and SS not protesting against this ?
    SS famously comes out on the street for every little thing

    So the socialist bleeding of india is starting. But everybody forgets the inconvenient question. Ultimately it is the tax payer who is going to pay for all of this in some other way.

    frankly, I thought you were talking about the forum members not the political parties.

    anyways, congress stole the show. now ss & bjp will be shy to jump in the pool before more deliberation.

    Also, I have to clarify (this thread will do, as it seems to be underpopulated) that I am NOT BJP supporter, but I hate congress and I like the idea of Modi as PM.

    I was talking about political parties, no one will oppose this move of NCP-Cong, and BJP-SS will continue with ti, if they come to power.
