Janta Nagar Small Scale Manufacturers Association on Monday threatened to launch an agitation against the Punjab State Power Corporation Limited (PSPCL) in case it fails to roll back its decision of cancelling the power supply applications of 157 industrial units.

Jaswinder Singh Thukral, president of the association, along with other members went to the PSPCL office to meet superintending engineer (SE) Kulbir Singh. They demanded power connections for those who had applied for the same in 2010.

Thukral also submitted a memorandum to Singh in support of the association's demands. The association members had also met PSPCL chief engineer NP Singh recently regarding this issue. NP Singh had formed a two member committee of the PSPCL officials to look into the matter.

Thukral said that it was an injustice to the 157 industrialists. "Many of the applicants had also purchased machinery for their units. No final notice regarding the rejection of the applications was given by the authorities,"said Thukral.

The PSPCL has formed a two-member committee to look into the matter.
