“If the bills aren’t reduced to original rates, we would lock them inside and as you people know well we don’t roam around empty-handed,” said Akash Vijayvargiya
Indore: On Monday BJP MLA from Indore Akash Vijayvargiya made controversial remarks while protesting against the inflated electricity bills. “We don’t move around empty-handed,” said Akash, son of BJP general secretary Kailash Vijayvargiya.
Akash Vijayvargiya said, slamming the Congress government for the inflated electricity bills. “Those receiving Rs. 200 bills during the Shivraj government is receiving bills of several thousand rupees.”
“If the bills aren’t reduced to original rates, we would lock them inside and as you people know well we don’t roam around empty-handed,” said Vijayvargiya.
Vijayvargiya claimed that the residents who got an electricity bill of Rs 200 during the previous BJP-led state government were now getting bills of thousands of rupees.
However, later on, he said he meant that he has a box of sweets in his hands. Talking about the stir against the electricity bills, Akash said the ‘anguished public’ would dethrone the Congress and the BJP would do everything to make public aware of the issue.
The Indore MLA had sparked a controversy earlier this year when he beat up a civic officer with a cricket bat while opposing the encroachment drive in a residential colony.
However, a massive furore had followed after which PM Modi issued a stern warning against such erring leaders earlier.
On Monday Congress spokesperson Narendra Singh Saluja said despite the warning from Modi, the BJP MLA was still making threatening statements openly as his party will not take action against him.
