Former Haryana chief minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda on Sunday said he will hold a demonstration outside Jharli power plant on January 5 and accused the state government of failure to provide electricity to people.

He alleged that state government had written to NTPC that it had surplus electricity and it does not need its share from the Jharli power plant.

“People of the state crying for electricity and the state government is surrendering its share from the power plants claiming that state has surplus power,” he said.

Hooda also slammed the Khattar government for its failure to take any single step to fulfill its 158 announcements made to the people during elections. Hooda also raised questions regarding the industrial investment in the state saying that investors do not want to set up industries in Haryana due to hiked electricity rates.
