The AIADMK’s former coordinator, O. Panneerselvam, on Thursday, said people were disappointed over the announcement of the DMK government over the reduction of tariff on electricity consumption of common facilities in residential complexes.

“This move is of no use for most people,” Mr Panneerselvam observed in a statement.

Pointing out that differential systems of tariff for a single type of use went against the principles of natural justice, the AIADMK’s former coordinator asked Chief Minister M.K. Stalin to scrap the present arrangement and protect the people, at least to a certain extent, from the impact of the power tariff hike.
