"Although there is no power in rural areas, bills with increased electricity tariff is being sent regularly," state unit Congress Vice-President Manak Agarwal said in a statement.

He alleged that Shivraj Singh Chouhan government had failed to ensure uninterrupted electricity supply it had promised under the ambitious scheme.
"Those farmers who are unable to pay inflated bills are being arrested and thrown behind bars. Some of the farmers have even committed suicide due to increased tariff," Agarwal alleged.
