'Powerless' Mulayam asked to clear 4 lakh electricity bill due

Samajwadi Party (SP) patron Mulayam Singh Yadav has been asked to clear unpaid electricity bills amounting to rs. four lakh against his house in his native town of Etawah, about 250 kilometres from here. According to the sources here, a team of the state power officials, which conducted an inspection at Mulayam's house on Thursday, also found that the power being consumed there was much more than the sanctioned load. ''The sanctioned load was five KW but the load being consumed was much more...a new 40 KW metre was installed there,'' said a power corporation official here. He also said that Mulayam had also not cleared the bills amounting to rs. four lakh. ''He has been given a fortnight to pay the bills,'' he added.
