Hyderabad: The ruling Congress in Andhra
Pradesh on Tuesday rubbished the Opposition`s claim that power
tariff will be hiked substantially.

"It is far from reality to say that the government is
going to increase power tariff by crores of rupees," Congress
Whip in the Assembly K Murali Mohan told reporters here.
"The debate (about possible tariff hike) is still on. It
is not correct to say that a decision in this regard has
already been made," Primary Education Minister S Sailajanath
said.

They were referring to the criticism of main Opposition
TDP and Left parties over the government`s reported move to
raise electricity charges. The Left parties held protests at
some places over the issue today.
