Members of the Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee minority department protested in front of the Hubli Electricity Supply Company Limited (Hescom) office in the Settlement area here on Monday, demanding withdrawal of the proposal to hike electricity tariff.KPCC minority department secretary Malikjaan Dukandar said that Hescom and other electricity companies have put a proposal to the Karnataka Power Corporation Limited (KPCL) to hike electricity price by 75 paisa per unit.

Electricity companies in Karnataka have been increasing the price, which is burdening the public, small scale industries and others. The government has failed to arrest the tariff hike and at the same time has been unable to provide proper power connection to houses built under the ‘Ashraya Yojana’, he said.The protesting members submitted a memorandum to Hescom administrator.
