AIADMK MLAs protest installation of China-made electric meters

Press Trust of India  |  Puducherry 

: Objecting to installation of China-made in households and business establishments in Puducherry, opposition AIADMK MLAs brought some units to the assembly premises and broke them today.

The four AIADMK legislators came in a procession to the assembly premises and raised slogans against the installation of the new type of meters.

A Anbalagan alleged the government had purchased the Chinese meters at a huge cost and said consumers were also shocked to see the rise in power bills.

He also urged the government to replace the China-made meters with ordinary ones that were in use previously.
