The Lok Satta Party today welcomed the Andhra Pradesh High stay on power distribution companies (Discoms) imposing fuel surcharge on domestic and industrial consumers for electricity consumed in the past.

In a media statement, Lok Satta Party Working President D. V. V. S. Varma wanted the Government to drop the ‘Tuglakian’ proposal of collecting fuel surcharge for power consumed long ago at least now in the light of the High Court stay.

The Lok Satta Party had represented to the AP Electricity Regulatory Commission that imposing fuel surcharge for previous quarters is unscientific and unjust, and results in odd situations like present tenants of homes being punished for power consumed by former tenants.
