  1. These bas_t_ards are collecting not the cost of the energy rather it’s the interest (2% compound interest) that they are collecting. Despite government’s crores of rupees every month and the interests the poor consumers are paying, still the officials of this hopeless department are barking again. We are really spineless. Meterless consumers and illegal tapping combine is getting around 20% share while the corrupt officials are getting 80% share of the total booties. And now the poor innocent regular consumers are paying for them. What a pity state! And now talking about higher energy cost. We all have to venture out with our Takhel Thang for a fair solution!
