Actor Salman Khan acted in a delicate manner on Thursday when he was asked about his stance on the ongoing farmers’ protest. Several celebrities including sports personalities and Bollywood actors joined the government backed campaign with hashtags #IndiaTogether and #IndiaAgainstPropaganda as a pushback mission after the international celebrity like Rihanna, Environmentalist Greta Thunberg, Amanda Cerny, Mia Khalifa and Jay Sean tweeted and highlighted the two-month-long farmers’ agitation at international level.

Responding to a question at the launch of a music show in Mumbai, the Sultan actor responded in a diplomatic way, he said right thing should be done, the most correct thing should be done. The most noble thing should be done. He did not mention what exactly is the correct thing in the matter.

His statement is the first among three big Khans of the industry. Shah Rukh Khan and Aamir Khan have not spoken out on the issue yet.

Thousands of farmers, mostly from Punjab, Haryana and western Uttar Pradesh, have been protesting against the Centre’s three new farm laws since November 26, 2020. The government has projected as major reforms in the agriculture sector that will remove mandi system and middlemen and allow farmers to sell their produce anywhere in the country. However, the protesting farmers argue that the new laws have no mention of minimum support price (MSP) and the mandis that will leave them at the mercy of big corporates. The farmers have laid siege to Delhi even as the government scrambles to find an amicable solution. They argue that they would settle for nothing less than total scrapping of the legislations, but now they have agreed to come at negotiation table.

No CNG sale in Delhi today, Dealers Association calls for protest; here’s why

CNG sale in Delhi

The Delhi Petrol Dealers Association (DPDA) has announced that there will be no CNG sale in Delhi on August 10 from 6 am to 10 pm. The reason for the closure of CNG pumps is the non-reimbursement of the electricity bills by Indraprastha Gas Limited (IGL).

Delhi Association called for the protest as the reimbursement of the electricity bill of CNG pumps is not being done by IGL and is long overdue which has been causing them huge losses every day. The protest will affect about 250 CNG pumps in the capital.

In a letter last month, DPDA President Anurag Jain wrote, We have decided to go for no CNG sale on August 10 from 6 am to 10 pm as a mark of protest. He further said the DPDA is forced to take this step due to the reluctance shown by IGL to pay the actual electricity reimbursement of CNG facilities to the dealers of Delhi who are incurring huge financial losses every month.

In Delhi, the electricity bill of the petrol pumps is paid by IGL, and CNG consumes a lot of electricity. DPDA says that IGL has not been paying the electricity bill for a long time, due to which they are suffering huge losses. And this is the reason the association has announced it will close CNG pumps today.

DPDA said there was a meeting organized with IGL in March 2022 to solve the issue, and IGL even agreed on the reimbursement of the electricity bill. After this meeting, the dealers were assured that the issue would be resolved in a month. DPDA said the issue has not been resolved yet and IGL didn’t fulfill its promise.

The non-fulfillment of DPDA’s demands has led them to take the step of closure of CNG pumps in Delhi on August 10. CNG is currently being sold at Rs 75.61 per kg in Delhi.
